hundred feet northerly of the south shore line of the river, 
which had a navi^ble width of approximately sixty feet In place*. 
M. 0. Hundley, Sr. , owner of upland in Block 4 Simpson Place, had 
been ordered to su spend unauthorized rilling of trucked lr material 
-laced on the mangrove marsh. His own engineer had brought the opera- 
tion to attention of the Staff by letter In which be indicated that 
he found the V. S. meander of the river to be In error and cited 
surrey Instructions of the Department of the Interior by which he 
had construed Mr. Hundley* s deed as including the marsh. The Staff 
was compelled to construe the Simpson Flace plat as having included 
unsold sovereignty lands and that private ownership could not be 
recognized as extending through the marsh. Kr. Hundley proposed 
to purchase the submerged land riparian to his property and to 
excavate the nengrove between the bulkhead line and river. 

The Staff recommended the bulkhead line. Upon examination of rasps 
and aerials, the Trustees considered the revised bulkhead line 
practical and approved the applicant's proposal to Improve the 
channel and erect bulkhead one hundred feet from opposite shore 
(leaving twenty feet more open waterway than required by Central 
and Southern Florida Flood Control District J, the depth to be 
subject to approval of the United StateB District Engineer. 

William 0. Thorenz, spokesman on Key 29 for several objectors, 
re- filed objections to the bulkhead line and any sale of submerged 
land, and several telegrams from protestants were received. Kr. 
Thorenz wes unable to attend hearing and no other objectors were 
present. 

Kr. Hundley offered $330. 00 for 2.24 acres, more or less, of 
sovereignty marsh between natural line of mean high water of his 
upland in Block 4 Simpson Place, Section 26, Township 1*9 South, 
Bange 42 Bast, and the revised bulkhead line. Including the filled 
areas. The Director advised that appraisal would be secured of the 
land In Its present state. 

Upon motion by F.r. Larson, seconded by Kr. Ervln and adopted, the 
Trustees overruled the objections, formally approved the bulkhead 
line fixed by City of Oakland Park Resolution Ho. 306 adopted 
July 3, 1962, authorized advertisement for objections only, sub- 
ject to ofrer of the full appraised value, and directed that the 
notice state that applicant was required to clear out mangrove 
to provide a one hundred foot minimum width of open water. 



05AKGE COUNTY. - File No. 1174-48-263.36. Charles E. Kelner on 
behalf of the First Baptist Church of Pine castle, abutting upland 
owner, offered the established price of $500.00 per acre for a par- 
cel of reclaimed lake bottom land in lake Conway in Section 24, Town- 
chip 23 South, Range 29 East, containing 1.22 acres, more or less. 
The application, approved by the lake Conway Water and Navigation Con- 
trol District, was recommended by the Staff for deed to be issued 
without advertisement pursuant to the usual policy for sale of 
permanently reclaimed Lake Conway bottom land . 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson duly adopted, the Trustees approved the 
sale at the price offered. 



PAL* BEACH COUNTY - File No. 1176-50-253.12. John B. Hughes, 
abutting upland owner, offered the area appraised price of 
{1333-75 per acre for a parcel of submerged land In lake Worth 
in Section 26, Township 44 South, Range 4 J East, 1.413 acres In the 
Town of Palm Beach within the established bulkhead line. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson duly adopted, the Trustees authorized 
advertisement of the land for objections only. 



DWAL COUNTY - (a) Resolution of the Jacksonville City Commission 
adopted on June 19, 1962 cited Dedication Instrument No. 22933 authorized 
by Trustees November ?, 1961 coverix| less than two acres of St. Johns 



- 9 - 7-17-62 



Hiver sovereignty lands between established bulkhead line and 
the south shore of the river which was the north boundary of 
the city's Souths lde Park, bounded west by prolongation of the 
west line or Durar.d" Avenue and east by John T. Allsop Bridge. 
Since general improvement bonds validated In the principal amount 
of tl, 750 ,000, approved by freeholders, were being offered to 
pay cost of development of Souths id e Park Including the dedicated 
area, by dredging, filling, landscaping park and marina facilities 
and other works for which plans were contracted, the city sought 
conveyance of the dedicated area in fee simple without restrictions 
or reverter clauses, The Staff recognized that the dedicated 
parcel, a narrow strip along and adjacent to the river frontage 
of the municipal park area, would include valuable public facilities 
and that the circumstances might warrant departure from established 
policy which had bean to grant by dedication with appropriate 
restrictions and provision for reversion for non-use or conversion 
to other uses, however In the event of sales not made at the full 
appraised value the Staff recommended that deeds require use 
for public municipal purposes only with clause requiring con- 
struction of park improvements within three years. 

(b) Be solution of City Commission of Jacksonville adopted 
June 19, 1962 requested Trustees to convey the submerged St. Johns 
Elver lands adjacent to the City Hall site, landward of established 
bulkhead line and including extensions of Newman and Market Streets 
and the area between said extensions, 5.023 acres, more or less, 
to the city in fee simple without restriction or reverter clauses* 
The Resolution recited that Ordinance EE-392 provided for issuance 
of general Improvement bonds In the principal amount of 12,000,000 
to pay the cost of developing the submerged parcel and adjacent land 
for public parking, park areas and streets including dredging, 
bulkheading and filling and construction of paving, public parking 
facilities end other works. The city asked for fee simple 
title without restrictions other than conveyance for public parking, 
park areas and streets. Inclusion of clause requiring commerce- 
men t of construction within three years was not objectionable. 

The Staff felt that waiver of a specific provision for reversion, 
at option of Trustees, for non-use or for conversion for other 
use, might fix a precedent for other grants for public purposes 
where title was conveyed without payment of appraised value. 

City Attorney William M. Madison described the proposed improve- 
ments, the greet expenditure of public monies involved, and the 
City Commission felt that deed with reverter would not protect 
the city if many years In the future the land should become 
surplus end other disposition was desired. 

Attorney General Ervin recommended against departure from the 
established policy, which the Board had followed to be assured 
of consummation of proposed projects and to be sure that state 
lands would always be used for public purposes. He pointed out 
that the city could come to the Board In the future for release, 
giving to the public an opportunity to object and to the state 
an opportunity to share In the price if sold into private use. 
Commissioner Conner said that in view of the fine public improve, 
meat projects of the City of Jacksonville, he would be willing 
to consider granting the city's request, since there was a bond 
Issue involved. Comptroller Qreen could not see why the city 
should ever have any use for the land other than public purposes 
and therefore why they objected to the reversion provision. 
Calling attention to the many requests for grant of state lands. 
Governor Bryant pointed out that Jacksonville's need might be 
greater in amount but not In degree. 

As a possible solution the Director suggested conveyance for 
public purposes under which no disposition would be made of 
the land without approval of the Trustees and an accounting 
as to proceeds and use of same for another public purpose 
approved by the Trustees. 



7-17-62 - 10 - 



Upon notion made by Mr. Larson, seconded by Mr. Conner end adopted, 
with the Attorney Oeneral voting "Mo", the Trustees authorised

MABTIN COUHTY _ The Town Commission of Seawall's Point by 
Hesolutlon Ho. 31 adopted June 29, 1962, requested vacating of 
restriction on sales of offshore Island properties conveyed by 
Trustees' Leeds Mo. 20202 to William C, Holthauer, Deed Mo. 20204 
to Herbert A. Hiers, Deed Mo. 20205 to Halph Hlers, and Deed No. 
20206 to Olenn V. Cook. The said restriction precluded sale of 
Island properties without Inclusion of upland to which such island 
area was riparian. Martin County had withdrawn its. objection to 
the sale with the understanding that such restriction would be in 
the deeds. Subsequently, the Trustees conveyed the submerged lands 
between the Islands and the upland to the riparian owners without 
restriction and on April 10 and May 22, 1962, authorised modifica- 
tion of the clauses whereur.der the island areas and submerged lands 
Bight be sold along with the portion of upland waterfront to which 
such island parcel and submerged parcel was properly riparian, this 
modified restrict loot to terminate when filling was done and the 
unfilled area dedicated to public use. 

The islands, not within a municipality in 1952, were In the corporate 
limits of Sewall's Point but ontslde the main town area bulkhead line 
and relocation of the bulkhead line was necessary before the owner 
and optionee of the waterfront upland could carry out development plans 
by filling the submerged land . The recent modification instruments 
were not recorded since the Town expressed in Its He solution that 
development and improvement was subject to its euthority and in the 
best interest of orderly development within the town the restrictions 
on sales should be removed. Other islands in the Immediate vicinity had 
been sold without the resale restriction. 

The Staff recommended that the original and modified restrictions be 
rescinded subject to approval of the Board of County Commissioners 
and that the Town Commission be urged to examine carefully all appli- 
cations for fill permits and require evidence of common ownership of 
upland and submerged land to be filled In the sone riparian to such 
upland ownership. 

Upon motion by Mr. Green duly adopted, the Trustees approved the 
recommendation of the Staff as the action of the Board.

LEASES 



BSCAKBIA AND SANTA BOSA COUNTIES _ Florida Gravel Company, holder 
of Said and Gravel Lease No. 1761 authorized on April 3. 1962, 
requested cancellation for the reason that exploration and 
testing failed to oonrirm preliminary tests, the form and quantity 
of material being such that commercial production was not consi- 
dered feasible. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees approved cancellation If 
Lease No. l?6l. 



GLADES COUNTY - Lykes Brothers, Inc., holder of Crazing Lease 
No. 1588, requested oce-year extension effective August 24, 19*2, 
upon expiration of the current lease which covered 148 acres In 
Section 34, Township 40 South, Bange 32 East, at #1.00 per acre 
per year and contained provision for cancellation by Trustees on 
90-day notice. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorized one-year extension 
of the lease on the same terms and rental. 



KOOOE COliHTY - Ira Sullivan, George Hanna and George Tromley, doing 
business as Sullivan Contracting Company, applied for commercial 
sand lease covering Snake Creek south of U, S. Highway No. 1 and 
an area In Hawk Channel east of Snake Creek Channel offshore from 
Plantation Key, southerly of and adjacent to property of Samuel 
Jaffa end Gerard Ehrlch as Trustees, with whom the applicants had 
contracted for privilege of stock piling the sand and whose con- 
sent to the proposed lease was on file. 

Heport of the Board of Conservation recommended dredging the 
northerly portion of the area east of Snake Creek laid out by 
applicants, being approximately 100 acres, and that the southerly 
portion be coneerved. The Director of Research suggested that 
lessee deposit some of the sand along the nearest public shoreline 
and that the lease be for a specific number of yards with shutdown 
when such yardage was removed. Any deposit of material at the 
nearest public shoreline, the State Bead Crossing at Snake Creek, 
would have to be done under direction of the State Bead Department 
and abundant material existed in the creek near the read whereas 
use of material from the proposed lease would require hauling 
and handling three times. Since commercial send leases were Issued 
on a royalty basis for a specific period, specification of total 
yardage was considered impracticable since dredging was periodic, 
dependent on orders for send and on the weather. Since the agree- 
ment between upland owners tea terminable in event they undertook 
development of their lands, the staff recommended lease with pro- 
vision for termination by lessees during the three-year term after 
accounting and full settlement for material removed. 

Upon motion adopted wothout objection, the Trustees authorized 
three-year leesf with royalty of 15*" per cubic yard, #75.00 per 
month minimum, #5000.00 performance bond, subject to termination 
by lessees during such term after accounting and full settlement 
for material removed.

LEK COUKTY - John K. Woolslair, on behalf of Charles Carey lalbot 
and Lettye W. Talbot, applied for disclaimer of a parcel of sub- 
merged land, approximately 2 acres, between the shore cf Calooea- 
hatchee Biver and the established offshore bulkhead line of the 
City of Fort Kyers. The parcel was within an area granted to the 
city "in fee simple absolutely' by Chapter 6962, Acts of 1915, and 
♦as quitclaimed June k, 1962 by the city to applicants. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorized issuance of 
ex parte disclaimer for handling charge of 320.00. 



rAIATES CCUMTY - Appiioatlon was made by D. G. Haley on behalf 
of fary Anne Kaley Perry for the Trustees to survey and determine 
the boundaries and character of a salt mangrove area in front of 
applicant's upland borderirf Tampa Bay , applicant being owner of 
Government Lot 3 ar.d EJ of SWj of Section 23, Township 33 South, 
Range 17 East, such survey to be made at applicant's expense by a 
surveyor designated by Trustees, and without prejudice or effect 
on valid existing proprietary rights of applicant or others. 
Applicant held title under 8, S. Patent issued to her predecessor 
November U, 1989 in accordance with the official U. S. Survey 



- 17 - 7-31-62 



approved iJovember 8, 1358. The U. S. Survey township maps of 
Tovr.ships 33 end "}k, Bange 17, showed a number of unsurveyed salt 
marsh and mangrove flats, one adjacent to the meandered Bhore line 
of applicant's upland, to which riparian rights would normally 
attech by reason of the meander of Tampa 3ey being the approximate 
boundary of her upland, but the un surveyed area being adjacent to 
applicant's upland raised question as to whether her ownership fronted 
the public waters of the Bay. 

Pursuant to a swamp and overflow land selection by an agent of 
the Trustees, the United States patented to the state "the un surveyed 
parts" of Townships 33 end 3 1 *, Range 1?, estimated be containing oOO 
acres end **00 acres, respectively (Tampa Series Patent No. 33 dated 
November 26, ISSU, five years after patent of the surveyed upland to 
applicant's predecessor). The unsurveyed partB of the two townships 
"containing 1000 acres" were conveyed by the Trustees January 1?, 
18?0 to Cecil H. Alleyne, et el, Tor $1.00 per ecre I Deed No. 11*099). 

Brief accompanying the application cited authority of the state* 
under court decisions, to determine whether such unsurveyed areas 
were sovereignty t Id elands or public lands End to determine the 
extent of title and rights of riparian owners, exempt from adverse 
Judicial scrutiny. Since the unsurveyed areas were patented by the 
United States to and sold by the State of Florida, the United 
States was not obligated to survey and fix the limits of sovereignty 
lands in relation to any swamp and overflowed areas Included In the 
188^ patent nor to define the boundaries of the unsurveyed areas so 
patented, end official determination by a thorough field examination 
or survey made by or under the direction of the state at the 
expense of the applicant, with reference to the character of the 
area in front of and adjacent to applicant's upland and without preju- 
dice to any owner's rights, appeared Justified, 

The Staff recommended that such field examination be made under the 
direction of the Trustees by contract with a Florida registered 
land surveyor In the area upon applicant depositing the sum necessary 
to pay the coats of the survey to be made without prejudice to any 
owners rights, to show the nature of the mangrove flat In front of 
applicant's upland, whether sovereignty or swamp and overflow land, 
or both, and to define by survey the boundaries of land in such area, 
if any, which properly was subject to classification as swamp and over- 
flowed land, and that In event lands properly swamp and overflowed 
were surveyed and mapped and filed with the notes of the field 
survey, the same should be checked by the Trustees' Cedastrel Surve- 
yor and If In order In all respects should be approved by him subject 
to acceptance by the Trustees as an official state survey. Freeman 
K. Horton was suggested as a competent, registered surveyor In the 
zone with extensive experience In defining mean high water boundaries, 
for consideration as the surveyor to make the field examination and/ 
or survey under direction of the Trustees 1 Engineering Staff. 

Governor Bryant commented that it was a good approach to the 
problem, and upon motion duly adopted , the recommendations of the 
Staff were approved as the action of the Board.

VOLUSIA COUHTY - Bequest wes made for disclaimer covering natural 
accretion between the northerly boundary of Lot 9 Cliff Subdivision, 
Pelmas Grant, Section 38, Township 16 South, Range 33 Bast, and the 
present line of wean high water of Spruce Creek, a meandered arm: 
of the Hallfex River, the parcel containing 0.^93 sere. Survey of 
the area in 1895 showed en offshore marsh rhlch, at the time Cliff 
Subdivision was p letted, had extended itself along the shore. 
Affidavit of William E. Swoope, registered surveyor, baaed on per- 
sonal observation and knowledge of the area, affirmed that the change 
lr shore line was a natural, gradual and imperceptible extension of 
upland Into Spruce Creek over a period of time as the result of 
deposit of material along the shore, and that some change might have 
resulted from construction of the Florida East Coast Railway bridge 
which altered the natural flow at the bridge. 

The Staff found no basis for determination that the deposit of 
material was artificially caused and the surveyor's affirmation 
that the £ re dual extension was by nature 1 accretion appeared sound. 
Ex parte disclaimer to S. R, Foil, the owner of lot 9, was recom- 
mended . 

Upon motion by K.r. Larson, seconded and adopted, the Trustees 
approved issuance of ex parte disclaimer to S. R. F.oll for handling 
cherge cf 525.00.

last, for public recreational purposes. Bounded north by part 
of a former causeway, east by lands previously granted by the 
Trustees for city sewage treatment plant and a tract granted to 
the Brevard County Hoard of Public instruction, the tract was 
mapped for proposed use as a golf course, marina and public 
park conforming to the city' s general plans for development of 
Islands and shallows in the zone. 

Staff recommended either dedication for public municipal pur- 
poses under supervision and control of the city with provision 
for revocation at Trustees' option In event of four consecutive 
years of non-use or conversion to other uses, or, if title was 
needed, that the land be advertised for objections only and

tain provision allowing the city to lease pert or all for a period

facilities, and that nominal consideration be charged in the

facilities and proposals for nfinagement by a lessee, city funds 
being limited. The Attorney General pointed out that the city, 
taking title to state sovereignty lend, would be turning it over 
to benefit jrlvate Interests end the Governor questioned whether 
it would then be a public golf course. The Board wanted to be 
assured that the grer.t to the city would be for municipal purposes 
and not as a conduit to a private developer. The City Attorney 
Etia a deed with whatever restrictions the Board put in for 
municipal uses would be sccertBbie and that If necessrry the 
city would develop it as r completely municipal project. It was 
agreed that the city would subrrlt their proposed arrangement with 
& developer for study by the Trustees. 

Vpor. motion by Attorney General Rrvln, duly adopted, the Trustees 
agreed to convey the land applied for to the City of Cocoa Beach 
for *50> CO nominal consideration subject, however, to such condi- 
tions, restrictions er.d limitations es the Trustees might deem aporo- 
pritte after examination of the city's firm proposal for use of

Fanned to extend 110 feet Into the Bayou from the chore more than 350 
feet from the waterfront ownership on the east, Frank L. Peyton, who 
objected to the in eta Hat ion. On June 29 Senator Philip D. Beall filed 
objection on behalf of residents of Warrington Community and on July 
10 filed suit In the name of John Pared lso and wife, et 81 (including 
Prank L. Peyton) as plaintiffs, against Fred 0. Davidson and Anna 
Villafrenoa, charging that the defendants Intended to build or were 
in the procesE of building a bulkhead and large wharf and by certain 
dredging operations changed the shore lines end waters. The Bill 
appeared to seek Injunction against use of the leased upland for 
commercial purposes. Applicants engineer filed statement that 
the timber bulkhead was Installed approximately one foot inland of 
the natural high water line, the dredging done was pointed out on 
a photo as a cutting of lessor's upland end certain marginal dredging 
to provide a 3- foot depth as en Improvement of navigation. 

Col. Peyton presented vigorous objections on the grounds thet 
property on Btyou Ann In the zone was residential and construction 
of the pier and boat ramp would materially affect his and other 
properties end use of the waters. He urged that no action be 
taken until disposition of the suit. Pr. Paradlso also charged 
that the proposed installation would greatly damage residential 
property . 

Representative Reuben O'D, Askew, representing the applicant, stated 
that the subject area had beer, swampy before clearing and Improve- 
ment of shoreline and navigation, that boating facilities were 
needed and the proposed location was not in an entirely residential 
area. 

The Board examined maps gnd photographs end In view of the fact 
that the area was not In a municipality nor zoned and no urgency 
having been established, deferment to allow examination on the 
ground by a staff member was suggested. 

It was the consensus that Engineer ^'illlam R. Kldd make ar 
examination and report to the Board before action on Mr. Davidson's 
application. 

It was so ordered.

MONROE COUNTY - {SAKSP Permits 62-244) Captain Qainey Maxwell made 
application to the Trusteea for lease of a twenty-foot square parcel 
on which he and other fishermen had erected a hunk-house shelter 
on pilings. In February the United States Pish and Wildlife Service 
made complaint concerning the "oamp house" on sovereignty lands 
near Marquesas Keys and suggested that the Trustees require the 
premises vacated . Captain Maxwell subsequently applied to the 
U. S, Army Corps of Engineers for after-the-fact permit, and the 
application to the Trustees claimed that the shack was not con- 
spicuous, offered protection for fishermen, and that there were 
other shacks and sheds in the area to which the U. S. Fish and 
Wildlife Service had made no objection. 

Zzaac Walton League and Florida Audubon Society filed objections 
urging removal of all unauthorized structures and cited the 
Executive Order of August 8, 1908, designating the Marquesas Keys 
and other lands owned by the United States as the "Key West Reser- 
vation" as a preserve and breeding ground for native blrda, which 
order recited "This reservation is subject to and is not intended to 
interfere with use of the Marquesas Keys for lifesaving purposes 
reserved by Executive Order of March 12, 1884." No evidence was 
submitted to show that the United States had provided any public 
shelters or facilities in the zone . The staff proposed that limited 
leases or permits for erection or maintenance of emergency shelters 
not to exceed three in the zone, on sovereignty or other Trustees' 
land, should be deemed in the public Interest, all such leases or 
permits to be subject to requirement that the fsclllties would be 
open for use as refuges by the public In event of emergencies and 
would be promptly removed when other and adequate public facilities 
were provided for emergency use on the Marquesas Keys or upon 
thirty days written notice from the Trustees that they had determined 
that the structures were not in the public interest. 

Notices to objectors were issued, and in the absence of new, valid 
objections presented on this date, the Staff recommended lease or 
permit to Capt. Maxwell for the twenty-foot square subject to above 
conditions for nominal annual rental, and also that the U. S. Pish 
and Wildlife Service be requested to furnish names and addresses of 
parties having other unauthorized structures in the area. The 
Director mentioned request for a survey in the Marquesas which the 
United States declined to make, and the likelihood of there being 
land of the swamp and over -flow classification ; also that Honorable 
Jack A. Saunders and Honorable Hilario Ramos, Jr., had contacted 
the Trustees' office on behalf of Captain Maxwell. 

Larry Glvens of U. S. Bureau of Sports Fisheries and Wildlife said 
the shelters probably would have negligible or no life-saving value, 
would ultimately destroy value of the reservation for wildlife, and 
that the Bureau was presently working on plans to provide certain 
type shelters which would serve the need for recreation and public 
purposes better than private interests . He urged that a survey be 
made to determine what life-saving facilities were needed Which 
could be developed by the proper public agency, and said that if 
it proved feasible for development of recreational facilities the 
Wildlife Service might make these available. Herbert Alley, repre- 
senting Florida Wildlife Federation, asked for protection of 
valuable shrimp and fish nursery grounds in the Marquesas Keys end 
said the Wildlife Service was cooperating with public recreational 
demands with a stepped-up program. 

Attorney General Ervin said it would be improper to grant a lease 
application on frontage of the island owned by the United States 
and Comptroller Green thought it would also be improper to require 
removal of the Maxwell structure. 

Upon motion by Mr. Green, adopted without objection, the Trustees' 
decision was to take no action.

APPLICATION'S FOR LAND 

BREVARD COUKTY - Resolution of the City of Cocoa Beach adopted 
August 16, 1961 was presented assuring the Trustees that the 
185-acre tract considered on August 14 would be used only for 
municipal purposes and that the city would not lease, mortgage, 
sell or otherwise encumber said property without first having ob- 
tained permission and epproval of the Trustees as to such lease, 
mortgage, sale or other encumbrance. The Be solution further 
affirmed the intention of the city to finance the cost of filling 
and construction of golf course, msrirs and other improvements 
through a municipal revenue issue of 1750,000, and requested the 
Trustees to convey the tract by deed containing such reservations 
and rights of reverter as the Trustees deemed necessary to insure 
use for municipal purposes only and that the lands would not be 
used by private enterprise for profit-making ventures without the 
city having first obtained approval of the Trustees.

BBOWABD COUNTY - Bulkhead Line and Application. File No. 1185- 
04-253.12. 

Presented for formal approval was bulkhead line fixed by City 
Commission of Poatpeno Beech Ordinance No. 770 adopted June 12, 
1962, corrected as to legal description by Ordinance No. 770-A 
dated July 11, 1962, for part of Hlllsboro Bay (Wahoo Bay) at 
Hlllsboro Shores Section "A", The bulkhead line eliminated 
sharp angles In the shoreline as platted and except for transi- 
tions at such points, the line followed the platted shore and right 
of way of Seabreeze Avenue. The corrective ordinance recited that 
the setter constituted an emergency. The Coastal Engineering 
laboratory did not find the line objectionable. 

Representing C. H. Fletcher Blley, owner of Lot 4 Block 10, 
A. J. Musselman, Jr., and John CrSnt objected to the line, set 
by the city and pointed out a more streamlined plant cutting 
back the area proposed to be purchased and filled. The Staff 
had concluded that the merits of the objection were not of 
sufficient weight to Justify rejection of the line which would 
Impose a delay In which any seawalls erected for needed protection 
would have to conform to the regular platted and definitely 
objectionable shoreline. Fart of the bulkhead line was across 
an embankment thrown against the shore by an avulsion In March 1962 
when the Jetty at Hlllsboro Inlet failed and the Peninsula then 
between Hlllsboro Bay and the Atlantic Ocean was torn away, 
leaving bay front lots fronting the embankment and ocean. Owners 
felt they should be allowed to construct new seawalls without the 
offsets which would weaken efficiency If conformed to the platted 
shore line. Staff recommended overruling the objection and approval 
of the bulkhead line for Section "A* of Hlllsboro Shores notwith- 
standing the existence of the embankment, but with clear under- 
standing that approval would not be construed as obligation to 
authorize dredging or other removal of the embankment adjacent 
to and seaward of said bulkhead line unless such removal were 
part of or coordinated with approved shore stabilization or restora- 
tion works. 

Attorney General Ervln was concerned as to whether any public 
beach area would be lost in the proposed bulkhead Ing. City 
Attorney Bruno DlClullan told of the long-time erosion problems 
in the zone, past assistance from Trustees, restoration works by 
property owners at their own expense, city hearings, consultation 
with Dr. Per Bruun of the Cob Eta 1 Engineering Laboratory, and 
establishment of the line to afford additional footage for pro- 
tection of residences. It appeared that the public area (between 
high and low water) was Inaccessible to the public. Maps and 
photographs of the area showed the "spit", a privately owned 
peninsula destroyed by wave action In March, showed the material 
shifted and embanked in front of the bayfront lots, and it was 
generally agreed that it would be most desirable for this spit to 
be replaced. Kr. MuBselman requested that, If the bulkhead 
line were approved, restrictions be placed in deed conveying the 
twenty-foot area proposed to be filled. 

J. H. Spencer, owner of Lot 6, expressed the opinion that there 
should be a fifty-foot area within strong seawalls to protect 
the homes. Mr. Spencer, William V. Short et al, and Oeorge C, 
Martin, riparian upland owners of Lots 7, 6 and 5, respectively, 
In Block 10, Hlllsboro Shores, Section A, offered $2500.00 per 
acre to purchase 0,O35» 0.035 and 0.017 acre, respectively, 
within the bulkhead line and Staff recommended that sales be 
made with the understanding that unless any filling done was a 
part of or coordinated with an approved shore stabilization or 
restoration project, hauled- In material should be used and 
dredging or any other excavation of the embankment adjacent to 
and seaward of the bulkhead line should be done only In con- 
nection with an approved erosion project. No action was taken 
on the purchase applications In view of the controversy on the bulk- 
head line. 



8-21-62 - 30 



Governor Bryant ea id that the Board wanted to protect the property 
owners but with the least damage to others by allowing the minimum 
of extension of bulkhead line and reserving public rights to any 
beech now existing or hereafter occur lng. Kr. Green suggested 
that the line be referred back to the city to work put a solution 
acceptable to both parties, and Kr. Ervin recommended deed 
restrictions. 

Upon notion duly adopted, the Trustees deferred action for one 
week for the City of Pompeno Beach to work with applicants and 
objectors, or In the absence of agreement, to bring back to the 
Trustees the bulkhead line considered by Dr. Per Bruun to be the 
best line for the locetlon. 



PISCEUANEOCS 



ALACHUA COUNTY - On July 11, 1961 Trustees deferred action without 
prejudice on application by Alachua County Recreation and 'Water 
Conservation and Control Authority for a parcel of Orange Lake 
sovereignty land 600 feet north and south by 200 feet east and

U. S. Highway Ko. 301 In Section 16, Township 12 South, fiange 22 
East immediately east of the existing causeway bridge In Orange 
Lake, for construction and maintenance of a water control structure. 
The deferment was In recognition of need for a plan which offered 
no prospect of damage to private Interests, represented by James *. 
Smith, Jr., whose clients showed need for continued flow of water 
at all times to prevent harm to citrus groves. The Authority sub- 
mitted revised plan providing a control opening in the dam to pass 
? cubic feet per second when upstream level was 57-0 •no' downstream 
level 56.0, and to pass 20 cubic feet per second when upstream level 
was 58 and downstream level 5?. Invert elevation of opening would 
be 55.5. On behalf of his clients, Kr. Smith withdrew objections 
conditioned on construction of dam conforming to the new plan dated 
July 23, 1962, and without prejudice to any right of his clients 
to take such action es might be necessary In the event the dam did 
not function satisfactorily or maintenance or operation was Inadequate. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees granted easement to the 
Alachua County Becrretlon and water Conservation and Control 
Authority with requirement that construction be conformed to the 
plan as revised July 28, 1962, that the Authority save the Trustees 
harmless from all damages and claims arising out of the construction, 
operation and maintenance of the dam, and without prejudice to any 
private owners affected by the dam .

use for 20 years a parcel of land In Section 6, Township 41 
South, Bange 43 East, and the former County Welcome Station building 
thereon for a civic center and Town Welcome Station. The parcel 
was part of a 33-acre sovereignty parcel conveyed In 1955 by Deed 
Ko. 20855 to the county for public purposes only. Subsequently, 
the County Attorney advlBed that the Town of Jupiter desired to 
extend its corporate limits tc Include the small parcel and use 
the building as Its Town Hall and Trustees* approval was requested. 

Without objection, the Trustees approved the proposed use, In

SUBJECTS UKDEB CHAPTER 18296 

INDIAN HIVEH COUKTY - The City or Fellsmere applied to use 
Elocks 11, 30, 31, 50 and 51 of Fellsmere, which vested in 
the State of Florida under the Murphy Act, for a city dumping 
area. The five blocks were sepa rated by unimproved platted 
streets and, except for the streets and alleys, constituted 
a parcel 1565 by 525 feet. About 35 lots conveyed by the state 
were within 1000 feet of the area, and It appeared that other 
private lands might be adversely afrected by conversion of the 
lots into a garbage dump. Provided the city furnished (l) list 
of all tax sale certificates under which the 210 lots vested In 
the state and (2) written consent of all owners of "lands within 
1000 feet of the five blocks and certificate of a title company 
that such were all of the owners, the Staff recommended State Per- 
mit for use of the five blocks for dumping and other municipal 
purposes subject to termination by Trustees when the lands were sold, 
needed for any state purpose, or whenever such action wbb found Justi- 
fied. 

In order to be sure that the proposed use was the best disposi- 
tion of the land, the Trustees deferred action for examination 
and report by Engineer William E. Kldd.

LAND SALES 



HONBOE COUNTY - Pile No. 11IH-**4_253.12. On July 10 the Trustees 
considered application by Leo Wallflch to purchase a sovereign 
mangrove flat or Island and adjacent submerged bottoms in Section 
22, Township 63 South, Range 3? East, commonly known as Wilson Key, 
lying in Whale Harbor northerly of U. S. Highway No. 1 between Wind- 
ley Key and Upper Matecumbe Key, containing 17.0 acres, more or less. 
The Board authorized advertisement for objections and competitive 
sale on the basis of the $425.00 per acre offer as starting bid, and 
requiring reimbursement In the sum of $598*53 over and above the bid, 
to be paid to the applicant, if not the successful bidder, which amount 
tee the applicant's paid engineering and survey costs and application 
fee. Notice was published in the Key West Citizen, proof of publi- 
cation filed with the Trustees, and no protest received. State Road 
Department filed waiver of objections to proposed sale. 

The Director called out the land for sale and one ma lied- in bid was 
reported in the amour. t of $435.00 per acre from H. J. KcManlgal. 
Competitive bidding resulted in high bid of 11750.00 per acre by 
Mr. McManlgal on behalf of Continental Fund, Inc., and in addition, 
check was tendered to reimburse the applicant, as required. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, duly adopted, the Trustees accepted 
the high bid and confirmed sale to Continental Fund, Inc. 



BREVARD COUNTY - Pile No. 1169-05-253.12. On July 10 the Trustees 
considered ofrer of $1000.00 per acre from May A. Mac Dona Id, 
abutting upland owner, for a parcel of submerged land In the Indian 
River In Section 26, Township 22 South, Range 35 Bast, 0.23 of an 
acre within the established bulkhead line. The land was advertised 
for objections only in the Tltusville Star-Advocate, proof of publica- 
tion filed with the Trustees, and no protest received. 

Staff recommended sale and approval of the fill permit Issued to 
Mrs. MacConald by the Brevard County Zoning Department. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, duly adopted, the Trustees confirmed 
sale to the applicant at the price offered, which was more than 
the appraisal, and also formally approved the fill permit. 



DADE COUNTY - On February 20, 1962, sales were confirmed to eleven 
applicants subject to issuance of deeds being deferred until 
resolutions of approval were received from Dade County and the 
City of Islandla. George StamoE and Continental Equities, Inc., 
two applicant b for whom sales of submerged and tidal lands In the 
Ragged Keys were confirmed , submitted copy of a proposed agree- 
ment between Dade County and the City of Islandla whereunder no 
sale of submerged land in Islandla would be approved by city and 
county until purchaser paid into a Joint trust fund 1*ȣ of the 
appraised value as set by the Trustees for such sale, the trust 
to be administered Jointly by city and county and no withdrawals

for purchase of perk property to be nede without consent of both 
city and county) and that upon deposit of said 1U~% the city and 
county Mould aoprove the purchase application as long as such purchase 
did not conflict with development plans of the city and county and 
no restrictions would be imposed in the deeds to purchasers as far 
as the city and county were concerned. The County Manager on July 
23, 1962, forwarded the proposed agreement to all members of the 
County Commission and proposed formal action by the Board on Septem- 
ber ftth. Opinion of the County Attorney dated August 13, 1962, found 
that if the agreement was to be effective It should be determined 
whether the Trustees recognized the city- county agreement and would 
cooperate in effectuating its purpose end objective before the county 
committed itself Irrevocably to the proposal. 

The Trustees discussed the long-pending purchase applications, the 
need to taice care of future public areas and the Board's efforts 
to be receptive to suggestions of the county, the many meetings and 
delays, and the Comptroller and Treasurer felt that these sales should 
be brought to a conclusion as soon as possible. Governor Bryant asked 
for clarification as to prices, and It was generally agreed that for 
the two sales there was equity In allowing the former 1123.00 per acre 
appraisal figure, that others com lrmad in February were based on more 
current appraisals, and that the matter of price would not be Included 
In the proposed resolution. 

Messrs. Stamos and Maxey were present, and the Trustees were asked 
to pass the proposed resolution to Indicate their feeling and to 
enable the county and city to formulate an agreement. Mr. Maxey, 
president of Continental Equities, Inc., asked that the resolution 
be modified to meet suggestions of County Attorney Davis to provide 
as an alternative to payment of lb% of value that the applicant 
could present an approved development plan, and also suggested 
insertion after the word "option" (in the suggested resolution) the 
following 1 "provided such application to purchase does not conflict 
with any development plans for said property by the county or the city. 

Attorney General Ervin recommended approval of the agreement In the 
form proposed for consideration by the county without modification, 
and he opposed any action on sales on this date since it appeared

of Mr, Lewis secured data sheets setting forth the Trustees require- 
ments for application for permit to construct a pier, however, no

invited him to show cause why the unauthorized pier and piling 
should not be removed forthwith by him. Notices were also sent 
to adjacent and neighboring waterfront owners. Including objectors.

further delay be allowed. Motion by Mr, Larson for two-weeks 
deferment was withdrawn and the Board deferred decision until other

tained that Mr. Lewis's attorney was not present.

Staff recommendation that the owner be ordered to remove all of the 
installations outside the mean high water line of the upland within

SARASOTA COUNTY - The Trustees considered a proposal from the 
Sera seta County Water and Navigation Control Authority to fix 
a bulkhead line In the Gulf of Mexico at Sander ling Beach, 
that the 6.33 acres landward of the line be used In lieu of 
Spoil Area S-34 {which would create an undetlred Island), and 
that the Trustees secure appraisal and In event no sale was made 
the county would bear the expense of appraisal. The county 
reported that owners were not Interested In constructing sea- 
wall nor in obtaining more land but would consent to the deposit 
of spoil if title to any remaining after a reasonable time 
vested in them, waterway dredging in the cone was scheduled for 
September but the Director advised that no purchase application of 
the five owners had been filed (Sanderling Beach, Inc., Siesta 
Club, Stanton, Payne and Tracy), and that sale could hot be 
processed before October and dredging would be completed before 
any seawall could be constructed for the 1455 feet of frontage. 
Two of the owners had groin permits under which accumulation 
of material or artificial nourishment would not prejudice any 
rights of owners or Trustees with reference to title. 

The appraiser's findings were discussed. An appraised value 
could not be fixed for an area not expected to remain filled, 
and It was suggested that the $475.00 appraised value in Lemon 
Bay for spoil areas adjacent to private upland be used and 
that filling with spoil be allowed to proceed pending processing 
of purchase applications and formal agreement between the County 
Authority, riparian owners and Trustees whereunder a survey 
would be node at the end of two years without cost to Trustees 



8-28-62 -40 



and any areas then remaining filled above mean high water 
would be deeded to the riparian owners at $k?5.00 per acre. 

Col, H. J. Kelly aald that the State Board of Conservation 
favored the proposal to assist the county, asked the Trustees 
to allow sand to be placed In an artificial nourishment 
arrangement and said that cost of pumping the sand from Little 
Sarasota Bay to the Sanderllng Beach would be a local responsi- 
bility. 

Trustees authorlzeo formal agreement, details to be approved by 
the Attorney General, between the county, riparian owners and 
Trustees whereunder applications to purchase would be filed by 
owners and processed according to law but no deed issued until two 
years hence as to the fill remaining above mean high water as 
disclosed by survey of a registered land surveyor without cost 
to Trustees, and that payment for such filled area remaining 
would be at the rate of fit? 5. 00 per acre, 



TBOSTEES FUNDS - The Trustees In informal discussion had requested 
that u. warren Sanchet be employed to represent them on certain 
matters pending In Congress, some out-of-state work having already

South, Range <*2 East, 1.72 acres, more or less, for quitclaim or 
disclaimer of the portion within the established bulkhead line, all 
of the parcel being submerged at noruBl high water. The parcel 
was part of the original Virginia Key and the 1.72 acres was an 
exception In Trustees Deed No. 18730 issued to the City of Miami 
August 21, 19^2 "for harbors and airport construction and development." 

On October 23, 1946, P. C. Elliot, Engineer to the Trustees, filed a 
report with the Governor concerning changes In shore lines In 
Virginia and Bis cay ne Key areas between 1911 and 19^*, noting 
recession of the north point of Virginia Key and the seaward beach 
and accretions to the westerly side of the Island. Changes occurred 
In the Biscayne Key area and the report found "the general Indica- 
tions are that the jetties are the only works having pronounced 
effect upon the nearby beach and adjacent sea bottoms." Copies of 
Coast Charts disclosed the rapid change which followed construction 
of the Jetties at Government Cut and other works In the zone north 
of Virginia Key and the major change appeared artificially Induced 
by the Jetty construction and not the result of natural gradual and 
Imperceptible erosion, under which premise, if accepted, title to 
the submerged area formerly upland , but lost by artificially ioduced 
destruction, would survive and applicant would appear to be entitled 
to quitclaim or ex parte disclaimer. 

Messrs. Jack B. Rice and A. P. Crouch presented objections on behalf 
of the City of Miami which by Be solution No. 33316 dated September 5 f 
1962, made application to the Trustees for the submerged land for 
future development of Virginia Key. Mr. Rice cited a report made 
by the U. 5. Army Corps of Engineers and a letter from Col. J. V, 
Solluhub, Jacksonville District, concluding that the change at the 
northerly tip of Virginia Key was natural, gradual erosion. He 
offered to furnish copy of the report. 

William J, Roberts, representing applicant, stated that the matter 
had been under study by the Trustees' Staff and report made by the 
office of the Attorney General . 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, the matter was referred to the Attorney 
General for study of the above mentioned U. S. Engineers Report 
and further recommendation to the Board. 



ESCAMBIA COUNTY . On August lb the application or Fred 0. Davidson 
Tor commercial pTer and boat ramp in an unzoned area was presented, 
objections heard, and action deferred pending examination and report 
by Trustees* Engineer, William R. Kldd. It was reported that the 
location was directly across the water from the Naval Air Station In 
a zone where a marine would hardly add materially to the high noise 
level! that neighboring owners, including objectors, had docks; that 
a railroad lay between the best residential area and the marina, that 
the Davidson location was adjacent to property used for business, that 
no traffic problem from the proposed marina was indicated | that the 
adjacent property was In the name of Hess and not Col. Peyton, the 
objector. Staff did not find basis for denial of permit and recom- 






i»3- 9-11-62 



mended no further hearing. The Director advised that Senator 
Philip D. Beall, who represented objectors, had requested copy of 
the application and all correspondence had from the applicant and 
hie engineer. 

Upon motion by Mr. Green adopted without objection, the report and 
recommendation were accepted and the Trustees author ized Issuance 
of the commercial dock permit to Pred 0. Davidson for $100.00 
charge. 



F3AKKI.ru COUNTY - The Trustees considered further the unauthorized 
pier installation at property In Alligator Harbor which on 
August 28 Mas ordered removed by owner within ten days. Applica- 
tion by M, J. Lewis as general partner of Seminole Asphalt Refining, 
Ltd., for permit, filed September k, stated that M. J. Lewis would 
use the facilities and the firm would not be Involved and no aspects 
of commercialism would be present. No data was filed to support 
the proposal of a boat shed thirty by thirty- two feet for a pri- 
vate use and the thirty by thlrty*two foot Bun deck 200 feet offshore 
appeared to establish precedent, other boat houses In the rone being 
reported small and located at the shore. The Director questioned 
issuance of permit to a partnership of ten or more as representing 
private use, piers for club use being In the same category as to 
requirement of consent of adjacent waterfront owners as were industrial, 
commercial, public piers and Installations for hotels, apartments and 
motels. In event permit wae granted, the Staff urged limitation 
to 200 feet of pier plus an end section of boethouse with gable 
roof not exceeding 10 by 15 feet centered with the axis of the pier 
and that no elevated sun deck be permitted and all piling beyond 
the limits of such pier and boethouse be required to be removed 
from the public waters at applicant's expense. 

Representing the applicant. Attorney Julius F. Parker told of 
Mr. Lewis' purchase and improvement of property on Alligator 
Point, that there was no intention of defiance, that plans would 
be modified to eliminate the boat house and reduce the height 
proposed for the sin deck to approximately the same elevation of the 
pier, that the shallow water made the 200 foot extension desirable, 
that some of the nearby property owners did not object to the pier 
which would be well constructed. Ralph Newman spoke In favor of 
the application. 

Attorney General Ervln said there had been apprehension that the 
size of the proposed installation Indicated use other than for 
the usual private cottage In the area. Kr. and Mrs. J. H. 
Barron restated their objections, particularly to the size 
and that they could get no assurance that only private use was 
intended. Dr, 3. H. Mlckler objected If the use would be for 
entertainment of customers and employees of the firm rather than 
for private use. 

Since it appeared that only private use consistent with the area 
was contemplated, upon motion by Mr* Larson duly adopted, the 
Trustees authorized Issuance of State Permit for the existing 
pier 200 feet long with tee-end not to exceed 30 by 32 feet 
centered on the axis of the pier and with elevation of deck at 
approximately the same elevation as the pier deck, with no 
boathoisee, the applicant to furnish amended plan drawings to con- 
form to this authorization.

KONBOE COUNTY - File No. 1173-Wt.-253.12. On AuguBt 28, 1962, the

as being In Section 16 of Township 62 South, Range 38 Bast, Konroe 
County, Florida, lying northerly of and abutting Lot 7 Block 3 
of Sunset Park, according to the plat thereof recorded In Plat 
Book 2, Page 81, Public Records of Konroe County, Florida, whereaB 
the parcel was actually in Section 14. However the description 
advertised was referenced to e lot and block of a recorded subdivi- 
sion and the office of the Attorney General found that such reference 
established the correct location and that read vert lseoent was not 
neceBsary. 

Without objection, the Trustees authorized the above report to be 
shown In the minutes to support correction In the office records. 



? ALE BEACH COUNTY - On December 29, 1961, Glad ev lew Sugarland,

further consideration on September 25th be given to the Palm Beach

.45 - 9-11-62 



PALM BEACH COUNTY - On April 10 the Trustees declined to grant 
request of Fain Beach County for conveyance t>r public purpose* 
of 28 acres of land already In use by the State Division of 
Corrections as part of Its Prison Farm, The Division of 
Corrections had asked that the grant of 28 acres be denied since 
It would require relocation of Prison Perm facilities at great 
expense and would aggravate security problems. 

On this, date the Director presented modified request of the 
county for 6.06 acres in Section 20, Township kj South, Range 37 
East, Immediately east of the county building site, to be used 
for public purposes only. Director Lou 1b L. Walnwrlght of the 
Florida Division of Corrections was present, and County Attorney 
Harry A, Johnson, Paul Bardin and others represented Palm Beach 
County, Objection was withdrawn as to the 6.06 acre parcel for 
proposed public uses (parking and caretaker's house) subject to 
submission of the county plans for any permanent construction for 
approval by the Trustees' Staff and the Prison Division. 

Upon notion by Mr. Larson, seconded by Mr. Ervln and adopted, 
the Trustees approved dedication of the 6.06 acres to Palm Beach 
County for public purposes only under supervision and control of 
the County Commissioners subject to approval of the plans by the 
Trustees and the Division of Corrections prior to construction, 
with provision in the instrument for revocation at Trustees * option 
in event of three consecutive years non-use or use for other than 
public purposes. 



PAL* BEACH COUNTY . On April 10, 1962, the Trustees denied county 
request for granT of the northerly one hundred feet of Section 
29- l O-37 as right of way for a proposed "Suear House Road", because 
the land was used by the State Division of Corrections which Divi- 
sion cited increased problems end suggested alternate routes. 
Board of Commissioners of Pain Beach County requested reconsidera- 
tion but no county resolution was submitted. The Director said 
that after preparation of agenda for the Trustees* meeting, 
representatives of county and the Division conferred on September 
10 and recommendations were made, the county agreeing to provide 
certain construction for the prison farm to facilitate installa- 
tion of the sugar house road* 

Messrs. L. L. Wainwrlght, Tlrector of Division of Corrections, 
and Carrie Curlee, Superintendent of Glades Correctional Insti- 
tution, were still opposed to the road and preferred other routes 
but mentioned certain things which the county had offered to 
provide ir the Board decided to grant the right of way. 

County Commissioner Paul Bardin, County Engineer Stephen H. 
Mlddleton and County Attorney Harry A. Johnston appeared surprised 
thPt the conference had not succeeded in thrashing out the 
opposition by the Division of Correction. Mr. Middleton said 
the county's developing road system Included the proposed road 
to serve needs in a congested area, would benefit the City of 
Belle Glade and the rapidly expending sugar industry. 

George H. Uedgworth, President of Suaar Cane Growers Cooperative 
of Florida, said that alternates were not practical, that the 
need was urgent in connection with operation of the large su^r 
mill under construction, and that the facilities recommended by 
the county to be constructed for the Prison Farm would be financed 
by the sugar Interests. 

Sugar mill and county road plans were discussed . The Attorney 
General recommended that the Trustees yield to the county's 
request on the basis of public necessity and the negotiated 
settlement as worked out between the parties on September 10. 

Motion was made by Mr. Ifl r son, seconded by Mr. Green, and adopted, 
with Mr. Ervin voting "No", that a committee composed of Com- 
missioner Conner end Engineer William B. Kldd Investigate further 
and report back to the Trustees in two weeks.

Range 37 East, lying easterly of and abutting the Si of Government 
Lot 2 of said Section 18, containing 9.4 acres, acre or less, within 
the established bulkhead line. The land was advertised In the Cocoa 
Tribune, proof of publication was filed with the Trustees, and 
objections were filed by Edward Fischer and Wendell O. Yount by 
reason of their proposal that the county aodlfy the bulkhead line la 
front of their properties. Correction of the aap prepared by the appli- 
cant's surveyor which did not properly delineate the location of the 
bulkhead line curve showed that the sale coo Id be sa.de without preju- 
dice to a liberal bulkhead line revision for the two objectors. 
Notice of the sale was sent to the Board of County Coamlaa loners 
and the county did not file objection or advloe concerning any 
contemplated change of the bulkhead line. The revision desired by 
the objectors was noted on the aap and the Director recommended 
confirmation of male to Hr. Yaseoko as not prejudicing any bulkhead 
line adjustment by the county for the two owners and on that basis 
James B. Dressier, representing the two objectors, withdrew objections. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees confirmed sale to the appli- 
cant at the price offered.

established bulkhead line, for which W. o. Hundley, Sr. , riparian 
upland owner, offered the appraised price of $740.00 for the parcel. 
The land was advertised for objections only in Fort Lauderdale Daily 
News, notice stating the requirement to clear mangrove to provide 
one hundred foot width open water south of bulkhead line, and proof 
of publication was filed with the Trustees. 

William 0. Thorenz, who protested bulkhead line and sale at previous 
meetings, filed letter objecting to the sale and to the offer made 
for the land and cited 120 foot clearance for the waterway. The 
Director explained that price was baaed on current appraisal by m 
registered appraiser and that the minutes showed requirement of 100 
foot clearance. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson duly adopted, the Trustees overruled 
objection and confirmed sale to Hr. Hundley at the appraised price.

of 2.58 seres, sore or less, of submerged land in Lake Worth In 
Section 26, Township 44 South, Bange 43 Bast, Town of Pals Beach, 
within the established bulkhead line. The land was advertised 
for objections onlj in the Pals Beach Post, proof of publication 
was filed with the Trustees, and no protest was received. Central 
and Southern Florida Flood Control District waived objection to 
the proposed sale. 

Upon action adopted without objection, the Trustees conf lrwed sale 
to the applicant at the price offered. 



PALP, BEACH CO DHTY - Pile Bo. 1157-50-253.12. On June 19 the Trustees 
considered offer - of $1925.00 per acre, the area appraised value, 
from A. W. Steffev and wife, abutting upland owners, for purchase 
of a parcel of submerged land in Lake Worth in Section 3, Township 
45 South, Bange 03 East, Town of Lantaaa, 0.25 of an acre within

abutting upland owner, for purchase of a parcel of su b m erg ed land in 
Lake Worth in Section 3, Township *5 South, Bange 43 Bast, Town of 
L antaaa. 0.13 of an acre within the established bulkhead line. 

The two parcels were advertised for objections only in the Palm 
Beach Post, proof of publication filed with the Trustees, and 
several objections were filed by riparian owners within 1000 feet. 
At the suggestion of the Staff, allocations of submerged lands 
were revised so that each owner's rights projected at right angles 
to the bulkhead line except for slight deviation at the easterly 
end where an early conveyance was aade to the Town of Lantana. 
Naps showing the revised layout were furnished to all owners in 
the tone . A. A. Humphrey and George Spatta continued to object. 
Several owners objected by reason of possible uses of the areas 
which were zoned commercial. 

The Staff recommended objections be overruled and the two sales 
confirmed, since the amended allocation plan provided equitable 
divisions for orderly development to be coordinated with the con- 
templated expansion of the Town park to the bulkhead line under 
a dedication previously granted. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson duly adopted, the Trustees approved the

to the city* a golf course et Stock Island. The land was required 
for expansion of the sanitary land fll 1 site and upon being filled 
would be used for public recreation purposes. Only one private 
ownership was within 1000 feet and since the Intended use wi > 
continuation of the present city use and the location was such 
that advertisement did not appear necessary, the Staff recommended 
dedication for public purposes only under supervision and control 
of the City of Key West with provision for revocation at Trustees' 
option in event the &reB was filled and for three consecutive years 
thereafter was not used for public purposes, or In the event or 
conversion to other than public purposes, end that advertisement

fact at Fort Walton Yacht Club end motion to deny permit resulted 
in a tie vote. The Trustees* Engineer inspected the area end con- 
tacted applicant's representative, James K. Cox, and the objector, 
Elbert ft. Levis. Engineer's report cited issuance of permit tfarch 
2k, 1960 to the Yacht Club, to which Kr. Davis did not object, and 
construction of the unauthorized pier prior to July 26, 1961 . on 
which date Mr. Davis protested that the pier and the mooring of a 
large boat obstructed view and we s otherwise objectionable and ad- 
verse to his edjacent residence, possibly causing pollution of the 
public waters and bathing area. Efforts to secure agreement were 
unsuccessful. The Engineer reported that Yacht Club facilities 
authorized in I960 caused some damage to objector's property, that 
the unauthorised pier added materially to the damage, and that 
requirement of removal appeared Justified end In such event it 
would be desirable to arrange for the other pier at the Club 
to be removed at such time that It required repair, which would 
eliminate a 1 ! docks lr. front of the boethouses end substantially 
reduce ^r. Davis* problem. It was noted that the Yacht Club had 
lerge dockirg facilities and boat slips at the end of its water- 
front beyond *he boathouses. In event removal of the unauthorized 
pier should rot br enforced, the report urffd euch use lin-.l tat ions 
as public health could demand. The Starr cur jested thct the size of the 
boat and its use ac p corporation er.terU'lnxer.t facility should classify 
the pier as commercl?! rather thtr. trlvete. 

The Trustee e questioned Kr. Cox, Tr. Cfcvis and Enflneer Kldd. No 
compromise wee reached and the Porrd e greed that the objections were 
valid. 

Upon motion by Fr. Larson sdorted without object lor. , the Trustees 
denied request for £ fter-the-fect ferm't ar.d directed that order 
for removal or the pier be carried out.

pending further Investigation or request of Pain Beach County for

of the State Road Department, Palm Beach County, State Division of 
Corrections, Sugar Cane Growers Coorpemt ive , and Representative 
Emmett Hoberts. Rr. Kidd's report dated September 2k cited some 
of the significant factors brought out In that meeting and con- 
cluded that the proposed sugar mill road along the north boundary 
of Section 29 would enhance value of the property but would cause 
some additional burdens on the prison farm manageaent which could 
be borne provided the prison farm did not have to bear the expense 
or relocation of certain facilities. The report recoiMrended 
(1) grant to the State Road Department of 100-foot right of way 
along the section line between Sections 20 and 29 with additional 
right to remove llmerock from the adjacent canal for use la con- 
struction and (2 J authorization for Palm Beach County Engineer to

PINELLAS COt'KTY - (SAKSP 62-526) Board of County Consuls 6 loners 
or Plnel las County applied for State Permit for public piers and 
boat ramp on Madelalne Key In the Mullet Key group owned by the 
county for recreational uses. On September 8, i960 the county 
obtained public pier Permit Mo. H*43(CD-121) for tlOO.OO fee, 
and since the Island group was a public recreation area and the 
county had not tendered a fee for the new Installation, the 
Staff requested directive as to whether charge should be rtede 
for the additional pier permit. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson duly adopted, the Trustees authorized 
the former permit amended to include the new Installation and 
waived the charge. 



POLK COUNTY - City of Lakeland Resolution No. ?ll adopted fterch 
19, 1962, requested dedication of the portion of a parcel 200 by 
^♦00 feet northeast of State Road 600 (Memorial Boulevard) which 
appeared to have been filled by the Sertoma Club prior to Decem- 
ber 7, I960, about 953* of the area being Lake Porker sovereignty 
land. On hay 6, i960 the Club proposed to dredge material to 
Improve a strip of land between the highway and Lake Parker for a 
public recreation area and the map furnished was a small scale 
city street map. The Game and Freeh Water Pish Commission approved 
the work and agreed to provide a boat ramp. The City of Lakeland 
by Resolution No, 571 adopted November 21, I960 approved the pro- 
posed park and boat ramp but cited need for the Club to make 
application to Trustees and any other agencies necessary for 
authority to dredge and establish the park. "Other agencies" was 
read as meaning the State Road Department. To the Sertoma Club's 
application on December 2, i960, for a "strip of submerged land 
lying between Lake Parker and East Memorial Boulevard", the Staff" b 
reply cited absence of authority to convey submerged land in fresh 
water lakes and expressed regret that the Club had not advised that 
the material sought May 6 was not for filling upland. Possibility was 
suggested of dedication for park and recreation purposes with consent 
of State Road Department and private riparian owners. 

On March 23, 1962, the City of Lakeland requested dedication and 
it was disclosed that the city and the club represented ownership 
of all property within 1000 feet, but no reply was made concerning 
the question as to whether the 200 by <*00 feet adjacent to the 
heavy traffic averaging 11,560 vehicles in 2b hours was adequate 
and desirable for a public recreational area rather than consti- 
tuting an attractive hazard. 

Two former dedications of submerged land In fresh water meandered 
Lakes were previously made in recognition of necessity (a small 
parking area extension near Florida Southern College and expansion 
of a municipal power plant), but the element of necessity was not 
apparent in this case. The Trustees took the position that since 
the land was filled and being used, it would be better to have the 
area committed to supervision and policing by the municipality. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorized dedication of the 
parcel to the City of Lakeland with option to revoke in event of 
three years non-use or conversion to other than public park and 
recreational purposes, delivery of instrument of dedication to be 
deferred until approval of the plan by the State Road Department 
and subject to the city assuming supervision of the park.

10-9-62 






only in the Port Lauderdale News and proof of publication «a« filed 
with the Trustees. 

The sales end ©ont capiat ed filling were viewed by a number of 
objectors as a trend toward narrowing the lower end of the Bay 
which currently was of the character of a lake since the Migration 
in "arch 1962 of the aandspit separating the Bay and Atlantic Oceanj 
that the protrusion which would result fro* filling and seawall at 
the new bulkhead line would direct waters into objectors' properties i 
and that the natural beauty of the bay would be affected. Two 
objectors called attention to applicants' proposal to construct rubble 
aound en sovereignty land bayward of the proposed seawall which would 
further narrow the bay and hinder restoration In their opinion. Mr, 
Spencer stated that the rubble sound plan had been abandoned. The 
Staff recoaaended against the rubble sound and advised that a model 
study of the area was planned.

on behalf of Balph Guthrie requested that a channel cut by Mr. 
Guthrie and Mrs. William* predecessor In title be excluded froa

the Intention to use the channel bottom to obtain fill and to

Tribe of Indians of Florida and as such organization received full 
Federal recognition and that the Tribe and Bureau of Indian Affairs 
had cooperated, employed engineers and architects and developed 
plans for schools and other facilities. Authority was obtained 
from the U. S. Department of the Interior for an area within the 
Everglades National Park to be made available for camp sites, govern- 
ment administration and school areas, beginning at the Collier 
County line and extending about 5t miles easterly and 500 feet Into 
the Park. Dade County Board of Public Instruction provided a 
temporary school building and a contract for a modern school building 
was planned for early 19?}. The Tribe did much planning work and 
all new development would harmonize with the topograph? and native 
Indian design. Mr. Harrington advised that the Indians had con- 
tracted for fill eaterial to raise the sites of homes und other 
structures above flood level, had secured firm commitment for loan 
of 1350,000 from the Bureau of Indian Affairs to carry out initial 
phase of construction, and it was expected that about $700,000 
would be invested in the completed project. 

Bequest was made on behalf of the Tribe for three snail parcels

contiguous to the right of way of Structure S-12-B, and (3) in 
Section 15, Township 5*t South, Range 35 East, easterly of and 
contiguous to the right of way of Structure S-12-A, legal descrip- 
tions of which areas were furnished by Central and Southern Flood 
Control District which held easement on the areas. 

Present at the meeting were B. C. Killer of the Federal Bureau of 
Indian Affairs and, representing the Miccosukee Tribe , Chairman 
Buffalo Tiger, Treasurer John Poole, Secretary John Willie, Law- 
maker Oeorge Osceola, Tomnrie Tiger and Stanley Prank. Mr. Harring- 
ton stated that the three parcels would be used for businesses operated

shop and boat ramp. 

Oovernor Bryant expressed the gratification of the Trustees for 
the efforts and cooperation of the Tribe, the Department of the 
Interior, the Superintendent of the Indian Agency, the Flood 
Control District, Dade County Board of Public Instruction and 
State Indian Commissioner Kldd, and coraaended the Tribe for its

BULKHEAD LINES 

3ROWABC COUK TY - Robert H. Curtis or. behalf of E. V. Vanstone, 
owner of Island "B" on C&tallna Isle In New Hlver Sound, requested 
Trustees to fix a bulkhead line pursuant to Section 2 5 3. 1 22(3) Florida 
Statutes which provided that " In the event the Board of County 
Comrl£sioners and the governing body of any municipality, for a 
period or sixty days next and after the receipt of the written appli- 
cation by such upland owner, falls, neglects or refuses to locate and 
fix a bulkhead line or lines . . . upland and riparian owner my file 
his application for the establishment of a bulkhead line with the 
Trustees of the Internal Imvrovement Fund ..." Mr. Curtis eon- 
tended that the City of Fort Lauderdale had failed lu fix a bulkhead 
line for Island "B", his client's investment and interests were tied 
up, and that his client had modified his plan once and any further 
cut would make It impossible to carry out the development planned. 

The situation was explained as follows. On December 20, I960, the 
Trustees deferred action on a bulkhead line fixed by City Ordinance 
C-169? dated November 1, i960, and requested the city to eliminate 
encroachment of the line on right of way of the Intracoastal Water- 
way and with suggestion that the easterly extension be reduced to 
conform more closely to the existing land mass. The city did not 
modify the line and upon request by the owner for final action the 
Trustees on Kay 9.1962 denied approval of the bulkhead line and on 
June 8, 1962 the city repealed its Ordinance C-I692. The owner then 
made application to the city for a new line; the city advertised 
and conducted a public hearing on July 1?, 1962. Local objections 
were received and owner agreed to some reduction, but further 
reduction was proposed to which the owner did not agree ar.d stated, 
accord ing to transcript of the hearing, that he would be better served 
by having the application rejected. City proposed deferment of final 
action to allow the owner opportunity to subr.lt a new legal description 
but upon the owner insisting on final action belr.g taken on the lire 
as modified, the city did take final action and denied the applica- 
tion. Kr. Curtis pointed out tte.t a sixty-day period followed during 
which tln-p the city had the authority and discretion to fix such a 
line as it saw fit, however the city failed to act. 

The Attorney General by advisory memor**ndur> dated August ?9, 1962, 
found that the city "has not failed, neglected or refused to 
locate and fix a bulkhead " but had made every reasonable effort to 
fix a line which in Its opinion was reasonable; that the city 
exhibited willirgness to held a hearing and fix a line and the 
fact tha r the line which the city appeared willing to fix did not con- 
form to that which the owner desired did not lay a proper predicate 
for the uwner to make application to the Trustees to fix a line under 
irov'.slons of Section 253.122(3) cited above. The Attorney General 
felt that on'v in instances of extreme arbitrariness and unreasonable 
refusal by the local body should the Trustees act, and that the owner's 
Statement at the hearing that he would be better served by having the 
line rejected might have led the city to assume that he would rather 
withdraw the application. It was noted that after that hearing, the 
applicant had not gone back and requested the city to fix a line 
located according to Its own Judgment. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, seconded by Kr. Green ana adopted, the 
Trustees referred the reouest Tor establishment, of the bulkhead line

MISCELLANEOUS 






BROWARD COUNTY - The Director called attention to an unauthorized 
fill of approximately five acres In the open waters of the Atlantic 
Ocean about one-half mile offshore north of entrance channel of 
Port Everglades created by deposit of spoil from dredging in the 
Port under a Federal contract. The top of the fill was 21.3 feet 
above low water, and the Broward County Port Authority recommended 
leveling the spoil to 6 or 8 feet below mean low water end expressed 
opposition to conveyance Into private ownership because it would 
have an adverse effect on navigation and the interests of Port 
Everglades. The first information concerning the fill was through 
requests to purchase but no naps of the area were available and it 
was presumed to be within easements granted for the Port. Subsequently 
the Port Authority reported to the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers 
that many complaints had been received from boat owners and residents 
of the zone north and west of the spoil area because of the unsightly 
Island being created offshore. Conversion to a public recreation 
area as suggested by the Broward County Area Planning Board would 
require enlargement in order to make adequate supervision and 
policing feasible, and the Staff concurred in the recommendation 
of the Port Authority that the fill be leveled to below mean low 
water. 

Map furnished by the Corps of Engineers disclosed that the water 
depth almost adjacent to the Island was as much as 12 feet, end 
when the Staff was unable to find the area covered by any easement 
an Inquiry to the Corps of Engineers brought the reply that the 
area "was selected for use in conjunction with Broward County Port 
Authority but our files do not reveal that any specific authorization 
for the offshore area was renuested from the Trustees. The area 
was used under paramount rights enjoyed by the Federal Government.* 
The Director reported that the Broward County Sheriff was called 
on to Investigate private seizure of the spoil island by Hobert 
Mulkey of Hallandale and to order vacation of the state sovereignty 
land for which no permit had been given, and the Sheriff had cotsplied 
and arrested the party for trespassing. 

Governor Bryant stated that the federal government did not have 
authorization to use the state's land and legal action should be 
taken. Attorney General Ervln said that sovereignty of the state 
In submerged lands was upheld by the courts In the Tldelands case, 
that the area, If needed for spoil deposit, should have been secured 
from the state by consent or condemnation, and that the federal 
agency would be advised that the State of Florida could not recognize 
any claim under paramount rights, which Assistant Attorney General 
Parker added would apply only to navigation and not to use of the 
land Itself.

Upor. motion duly adopted, the Trusteei. directed thet request be 
mad* to the Corps of Engineers for the island to be leveled to 6

3 .'JSIEES F'.'rtDS - Trustees as State Erosion Agency under provisions 
cf Chapter 57T791, Acts of 1957. 3ussell B. Clark and Andrew Potter 
of Hilieboro Inlet Improvement and Maintenance District were present 
on behalf of e proposed model study of the Hlllsboro Inlet zone in 
Broward County to determine measures to stabilize the Inlet, reduce 
shoe ling, bypass send across the Inlet, evaluate the effects of the 
Inlet on beech erosion in the zone end Indicate measures to eliminate 
the adverse effects. The area of survey and model study would cover 
the zone where the Inlet created problems of shoe ling and erosion 
Including the Jetty which failed and the Hlllsboro Bay area where 
the long offshore send spit wes shifted Bhoreward In Kerch 1962. 

By Resolution edopted Septeirrer h, 1962, the District earmarked 
end appropriated one- fourth of the estimated cost of the model study 
! reject, not to exceed $10,000, subject to equal contribution from 
the City of Pompano Beach and subject to the Trustees matching with 
funds In the amount of one-half of the cost. City Resolution Fo. 
62-2369 adopted September 25, 1962, agreed to contribute e sum not 
to exceed Jl 0,000 contingent upon the contribution of an equal sum 
ty the District and fifty per cent of the coat by the Trustees. The 
Ccaet&l Engineering laboratory estimated that hydrographlc surveys 
In the area, scale model and tests would require 12 to 13 months 
at a tctsl cost of £27,300 and advised that the study would supple- 
ment and not duplicate eny of the overall Broward County shoreline study 
ty the Beech Erosion Board (C. S. Engineers). The Trustees previously 
authorized matching funds for studies and works In Browerd County as 
follows 1 County- wide shore study, $12,000; Deerfleld Beach, 865,000; 
Pompano Beach, 537,500. The Director pointed out that of the total 



10-16-62 -70- 



amount of 1300,000 of Trustees funds for erosion control work , 
only about one-fifth remained. 

Mr. Clark said that the Federal government had made survey after 
survey of the Inlet problem but from the Federal standpoint the 
Inlet did not have sufficient economic demand to warrant expendi- 
ture of Federal funds. He explained that the District would 
undertake the actual erosion control work, operating with funds 
raised through Its taxing powers. 

Upon motion by Comptroller Green, seconded and duly adopted, the 
Trustees agreed to make available matching funds up to 113,650 
be one-half the cost of the model study project by the Coastal 
Engineering laboratory in the Hlllsboro Inlet zone In Broward 
County . 



TBUSTEES FUNDS - The Director recommended authority be given 
for expenditure of Trustees' funds in the amount of $8,300.00 
as the Trustees' part on continuing cooperative agreement with 
U. S. Geological Survey program of investigation of water resources 
of important lakes in Florida for the 1962-1963 fiscal year. The 
Trustees' contribution plus $6,100 contributed by counties and 
local agencies, or a total of il6 ,1*00.00, would be matched by 
Federal funds. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorized participation in 
the cooperative agreement with the U. S. Geological Survey for the 
fiscal year commencing July 1, 1962, on the baBls outlined.

Port Everglades to be leveled to below mean low water. Subsequently 



10-23-62 -72- 



copy of letter to the District Engineer supporting the request 
for removal we received from Gulf stream Sailing Club with sug- 
gestion that if the island roust remain, it should be graded 
with removal of shoals east of the Island end made into a park 
area. The Borrd of County Commissi oners of Broward County requested 
Trustees to withhold action or. removal or disposition of the Island 
until the County Area Planning Board and other Interested govern- 
mental units had reasonable opportunity to complete studies and 
forward recommendations. Anglers Club of the county suggested use 
of the island for recreation and a haven for snail beats. The 
Port Authority called attention to the objections from residents 
of the residential area lying north and weBt of the spoil area. 
Charles B. Hallett applied to purchase the offshore island. 

Available information indicated the island was an attractive 
hazard with deep water almost adjacent to three sides ar.d shoels 
an the east side, being a rather steep mound to 21 feet above 
mean low water, not over six acres exposed. The Staff recommenda- 
tion, in the event removal was not required, was that the county 
and other units be given thirty days to produce a plan with assurance 
that the shoels be removed, the Island graded to suitable elevation 
with safe narglnal beech or bulkheaded, with showing that public 
facilities would be provided Including fresh water, sanitary facili- 
ties and adequate supervision, also showing that funds were available 
and would be used to accomplish said improvements by a prescribed 
calendar date, also showing whether commercial concessions were 
contemplated and if so, whether all proceeds would be used for 
Improvement of the island for public uses. The Staff recommended 
that, in event request for leveling below low water was revoked In 
deference to the county request , the county should provide safety 
measures in the island's present stete, end that if the county or 
other responsible unit did not produce plan with essurences as 
outlined, then the request to the U. S. Corps of Engineers should 
be renewed. 

Gov error Bryant said that the criticel Issue was the assertion 
by the Federal government of perantount rights to sovereignty land 
and the consensus of the Board was that written statement should 
be secured from the CorpB of Engineers receding from that position 
and agreeing to request permission in the future to deposit spoil 
on state land; also, the Trustees agreed to look into the nfitter 
of ellowlng use of the Island for public recreation with the 
understanding that the county would follow the staff recommenda- 
tions set out above. Engineer Kldd was asked to inspect the island 
and make recommendation. 



DADE COUNTY - The Trustees were asked for directive as to whether 
penalty Interest of one per cent per month should be required on 
delayed payments on purchase contract No.2>209 which was prepared 
end forwarded on April 19, 1961 to the then attorney of Donald Y. 
Baxter, Trustee, for the sale of 2.03 acres of submerged Blscayne 
Bey lend. No appreciable deley was anticipated beyond the thirty 
day period allowed. The contract, amounting to $9812.67 with 
nine seml-annuel Installments of 3809.13 each Including six per 
cent Interest, was returned by another attorney executed October 
11, 1962, with all payments and Interest through October 19, 1962 
(1^957.89), together with assignment to Samuel Zorovich. Inasmuch 
as the sale could be made only to the riparian owner and there 
appeared do basis for re-apprslsel, the Staff did not seek to have 
the sale cancelled and felt that no contract exist r-d until the 
instrument was returned executed by the purchaser . 

The Trustees took the cost ion that execution of the contract osde 
provisions of (he printed contract applicable, Including require- 
ment of penalty interest on delayed payments from the April 19. 
1961 date shown on the contract. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees directed that penalty 
interest at the rate of one per cent per month should be imposed 
for the delayed payments, and on that basis the contract assign- 
ment was approved.

PALM BEACH COUNTY - Port of Palm Beach District (formerly Lake 
worth Inlet District) requested release of public purpose and 
reversion clauses in Trustees* Deed No. 17793 issued January 27, 
19^7, conveying 46. 42 acres In Section 34, Township 42 South, 
Bange 43 East, at Peanut Island. Koet of the westerly portion 
of the tract was originally conveyed In 1923 by Deed 17102 for 
#100 per acre with public purpose and reversion clause and was 
reeonveyed January 25, 192?; the remainder of the tract was con- 
veyed to the District April 22, 1925 for $10 and other valuable 
consideration and was reeonveyed January 25, 1927- The parcel west 
of and adjacent to the 46.42 acres was conveyed to Brown Company 
by Deed 17791 on January 27, 1927 at $105 per acre without 
restriction, a parcel north of and adjacent to the 46.42 acres and 
north of the parcel in Deed 17791 was conveyed January 27, 1927 
to Broward Company by Deed 17792 for $100 per acre without restric- 
tion. A parcel west of Deed 17791 was conveyed by the Trustees to 
the District July 10, 1952 by Deed No. 20101 for public purposes 
with reversion clause for $1.00 and other valuable considerations 
and the parcel east of the 46.42 acres wee conveyed to the District 
for $100 per acre by Deed No. 19589 on April 14, 1950 without 
restriction. The minutes and files did not disclose why sale to 
the private corporation was made at about the same rate, without 
restrictions, as was charged to the District for limited uses. 

Chapter 7081, Special Acts of 1915, created the District with 
authority to hold, control and acquire property required for the 
purposes of the District. The sovereignty parcel on Peanut Island 
which now had considerable value was transferred to serve statutory 
needs of the District, and the Staff felt that if the restrictions 
were vacated the full fair market value Bhould be charged less sums 
heretofore paid to Trustees - otherwise that the District should 
reconvey the 46.42 acres when no longer needed for Port purposes 
and receive refund of the sums paid to Trustees. 

Representing the Port District, Joel Wilcox said that for its own 
purposes the District had Indicated a bulkhead line for ultimate 
development of the Island which appeared best suited for marine 
laboratory, seaquarlum or residences and that the Port District would 
like to give lease for removal of some of the large volume of spoil 
to be deposited on the island by mtracoastal waterway improvement 
works of the Corps of Engineers. He said the area was not suitable 
for recreational use. 

To obtain further Information as to whether the State should parti- 
cipate in any profit derived from the property or whether use of 
the Island for recreation or other public use wbb Indicated, the 
Board requested Engineer William B. Kldd to look Into the matter 
and report at a later date. 



CAP rrOL t;fc«lEH - Without objection, the Trustees authorized transfer of 
2 Prig id's Ire i960 re verse cycle A-C units, Kodel ACDB-100-08, from

of Commissioners of State Institutions of $125.00 each. The units, 
sold by supplier to subcontractor for $247.65 each, were installed 
In the telephone exchange in the old Hose Building basement and 
were removed when the Elliot Building construction provided the 
exchange with heating and air conditioning.

LEASE5 



BRE VARD, INDIAN RIVER, ST. LUCTE AND PA3TIN COUNTIES - The Trustees 
considered the advisability of declaring Lease No. 713 cancelled 
by reason of failure of the lessee to own and maintain e plant in 
Florida and to perform the mining operations which were authorized 
and contemplate^. Under paragraph 15 of the lease issued June 1, 1950 
to Florida Ore Processing Company, Inc., covering sovereignty lands 
to the mean high water line both east and west of the mi d- channel 
of the Indian River, the Banana Elver and all ocean beaches in 19 
townships, which provided for ten year extension upfn construction or 
acquisition by lessee of a plant for (Lining and refining of minerals 
In Florida costing not less than 130,000, the lessee weB granted ten 
year extension July 12, 1955. In 1956 assets of lessee were sold by 
Trustee In Bankruptcy to Frederick A. Hauck, current holder of the 
lease, the assignment was improved January 3, 1957. and Mr. Hauck 
posted 31000 cash bond. On October 5, 1956 Kr. Hauck reported 
destruction by explosion of the building and equipment of the plant 
at Kelbourne. Klnlmum rental of *25 per month, without royalties, 
was paid since the approximate date of the explosion end no produc- 
tion nor ownership of s plant was indicated. 

The Attorney General reviewed the lease and advised that it might be 
construed that the Trustees in granting the ten year extension ected 
upon the assumption that such a plant would be constructed and 
operated by the lessee and that the primary purpose of the lease 
was to encourage the ectual mining but that it wbb obvious that such 
exploration or mining operations were not being conducted by the 
assignee and the lease hindered the establishment of bulkhead lines 
and clouded the title to submerged lands which might be sold to 
riparian owners. The Intended purpose of the lease not being carried 
out and Kr. Hauck having been advised of consideration on this date. 
Staff recommended thrt Lease No. 713 should be declared cencelled 
as of the date through which prepa'd minimum rentals were paid 
(December 1962) and upon such date that refund of the cash bond be 
tendered to lessee. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the recommendations of the Staff were 
approved as the action of the Board .

ments, to insure receipt of fair market value for state lands sold. 
Applications were presented from V. Stanley Hanson, Jr., and William 
B. Welgel, Jr. The Director expressed agreement to any change in 
Hiiralsal procedures which would result in Improvement or assistance 
to tht? Board, stated that appraisals needed were generally on sub- 
merged or tidal lands between private upland and an established offshore 
bulkhead line and there were problems In trying to arrive at the theory 
of appraising submerged land. He advised that the current and new 
budgets made no provision Tor the addition to the Staff and that 
office facilities might be required. 

Upon motion toy Mr. Ervin, duly adopted, the Trustees deferred action 
and requested the Engineer and Director to interview the applicants 
and make recommendation to the Board.

housing or other industrial purposes. The triangular shaped block

within the corporate limits of the city, within two blocks of rail- 
road siding. Appraisal secured in January 1962 placed a value 
of $2,250.00 on the block which applicant considered high and 
furnished an appraisal of $1500.00 made by a local realtor. Since 
the sale would be a public sale on competitive bide, which should 
realize the fair market value, Staff recommended advertisement for 
bids. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson duly adopted, the Trustees authorized 
advertisement for competitive bids subject to notice that the 
Board reserved the right to reject any and all bids received in 
Tallahassee on the advertised sale date. 



PALM BEACH CPU HTY - Pile No. 1234-50-253.129. Starr recommended

filling Mas completed during the term of the original permit which 
expired December 31, 1958. Trustees waived objection to the 
filling which proceeded under the Butler Act (Section 271.01 Florida 
Statutes). The office of the Attorney General recognised that 
passage of the bulkhead law on June 11, 1957 ■ was not retroactive 
and did not extinguish the right to fill during the term of the 
permit in effect on June 11, 1957. Under Section 253.129 title 
to lands filled prior to said date, in Palm Beach and Dade Counties, 
was confirmed and the Trustees were required to Issue dlsclaiier

Beach County. Said upland lots were listed as being in Section 19, 
Township 1*0 South, Range 1*3 East, whereas they were actually In 
Section 30, The office of the Attorney General found that reference 
to lot and recorded plat established the correct location and read- 
vert lsement was not considered necessary. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorized issuance of 
corrective deeds to grantees in the original deeds, Sam A. Stephens 
and Sam A. Stephens, Inc., showing Section 30, Township 1*0 5outh, 
Bange 1*3 East, thereby correcting all of the record* involved.

October 9, 1962, and that only one bid was received for each, as 
follows 1 offer from Sam Crowder of $80.00 for the Williams house

Division of Corrections, or other agencies might be interested in 
removal of the buildings for the materials. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, duly adopted, the Trustees rejected Mr. 
Crowder' s bid and asked Mr. Armstrong to contact the agencies regarding 
disposition of the houses for possible public use.

PI HELLAS COUNTY - Pile No. 10*7-52-253.12. Staff recommended appro- 
val of bulkhead line fixed by Pinellas County water and Navi^tlon 
Control Authority on November 10, I960 for upland of Clrard W. Lane 
as Trustee at Seaside Point In Section 3, Township 28 South, Range 
15 Bast. The line followed the shore of St. Joseph Sound about 
550 feet, then proceeded bey ward with a maximum offshore distance of 
about 1600 feet and ended approximately 700 feet offshore In the 
mouth of Sutherland Bayou where It connected with a bulkhead line 
previously established. The bulkhead line and application to purchase 
99.19 acres landward of the line were both considered December 12, 
1961, and action deferred for possible agreement to be reached by 
the applicant and Mr. and Mrs. C. K. Charles, which was not reached. 

Staff found the offshore limit excessive for sale and development but 
suggested that If the line was approved in connection with sale of a 
reduced area not exceeding 55 acres (within the 99.15 acre area 
approved and advertised by the County for sale), proceedings by the 
County Authority to retract sale could be avoided and desirable 
improvement could go forward with minimum damage to marine life and 
other natural values. Under a plan submitted by applicant which 
would provide unobstructed view across St. Joseph Sound and Suther- 
land Bayou, the area for purchase by Mr. Lane as Trustee was less 
than 50 acres Including half of the area to be dredged for fill, and 
applicant offered the appraised price of $250.00 per acre. Trustees 
Engineer William H. Kidd inspected the property and explained the basis 
of the Staff recommendation that sale be confirmed for an area not 
exceeding 55 acres for development of residential lots, waterways and 
streets In accordance with a recommended fill layout. 

The Trustees examined the map submitted and reviewed facts regarding 
the application. Attorney General Ervin advised that request for 
postponement had been made by Attorney Bex Owen. Speaking on behalf 
of the applicant, C, Bay Smith asked that sale be approved and con- 
tract held for thirty days. 

Upon motion by Mr. Ervin, seconded by Mr. Green, and adopted, the 
Trustees deferred action on approval of bulkhead line and sale for 
one week with the understanding that action would be taken at the 
next meeting.

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorized issuance of permit 
for regular jioo.00 processing fee. 



DADE COUNTY - Staff recommended approval, for the record, of assign- 
ment or Contract No. 22903 by Charles F. Harvey, et al, to Florida 
Pat band Corporation and by Florida Patsand Corporation to Pirates 
Bay Marina, Inc., the assignee in each instance having executed formal 
acceptance of the provisions and obligations of the original purchase 
contract. 

Request was made for refund of overpayment of 11792.25 as of the 
October 24, 1962, installment date, an excess payment having been 
made by reason that the area of 193-78 acres stated In the original 
contract was in error and the correct area was 178.21 acres. Also, 
recommendation was made for issuance of two new contracts to the 
assignee, Pirates Bay Farina, Inc., superseding the original contract. 
The contract represented purchase of two tracts, one by the contract 
grantees for themselves and the other on behalf of James L. Paxson 
and Amelia P. Parquhar, riparian owners with whom litigation was con- 
cluded by agreement of record dated December 12, 1950, whereunder the 
original purchasers, Charles F. Harvey and Helen A. Arnold, might 
purchase 120.56 acres (corrected area) In their owr. behalf and might 
purchase on behalf of Paxson and Parquhar 57.65 acres (corrected area) 
to be conveyed at no cost to Paxson and Farquhar. Trustees' Auditor 
with review and assistance from the State Auditing Department prepared 
two new schedules for distribution of all payments heretofore made 
and which would become due under the original contract as corrected, 
cne schedule for the 120.56 acres and one for J7.6 1 ; acres, in order 
that the Paxson interest would be in position to conclude acquisition 
under provisions of the I960 agreement. 

The Attorney General suggested that the Trustees review all facts 
concerning Black Point and asked that no action be taken without 
hearing from Dade County. There was discussion and the Director 
rev it wed Trustees' action with reference to the area sold in i960 
to Charles F. Harvey for which contract assignments and refund of 
excess payment were requested . Engineer Kldd had made investigation and 
reported that the county had asked for 90-day deferment as to sale of 
the remaining land within the established bulkhead line. Kr. Larson 
rf called previous consideration and pointed out that the Trustees had 
not contemplated giving land in the area to Dade County. 

Upon motion by Kr. Larson, adopted without objection, the Trustees 
deferred action for one week to allow Dade County opportunity to 
be heard concerning the proposed purchase contract assignments covering 
lands sold in I960, refund of overpayment arising out of error In the 
computed area, and also with reference to proposed issuance of two 
new contracts with corrected areas and payment scheduled to supersede 
the original contract.

LEE COUNTY - Joint Action, Board of Education and Trustees of 
intemalTmprovement Fund . 

Presented to the Board of Education and the Trustees was recommenda- 
tion for dedication In perpetuity, for public park and wildlife 
sanctuary under supervision end management of Florida Board of 
Parks and Historic Memorials in cooperation with Florida Board of 
Conservation and Florida Game and Fresh water Fish Commission, of 
the existing lands, aangrove and marsh areas within the theoretical 
boundaries of the following tracts! 

State Board of Education ; K x ; and Nj of S4{ and Et of SEi of 
Slfit and 34 of 3E£ of Section 16, Township *6 South, Range 22 
Bast; and 

Trus tees of Interna l Improvement Fund i SEi of SEj of 
Section B; 5* of BWj of Section 9; S* of KWii and Swi t 
and SWi of SEi of Section 15; NBi of Section 17; KEJ 
of MEi of NWi; and NEi of Section 21 j II V* of Section 
22 i All in Township 46 South, Bange 22 East. 

It was recommended that the refuge be designated as the Jay N. (Ding) 
Darling Wildlife Sanctuary In accordance with Resolution adopted 
Hay 14, 1962 by the Florida Board of Parks and Historic Memorials. 

The theoretical boundaries used in the description encompassed 
masses of land, mangrove, marsh and open public water. Section 
lines shown by official U.S. survey of 18?6 corresponded reasonably 
well on the ground but the subdivision of the sections, the govern- 
ment lots and meanders shown on the U. S. survey did not correspond 
with physical boundaries of actual land, mangrove or marsh and 
public waters and definition of a perimeter boundary for the sanctuary 
using the 0. S. survey would be useless, but use of the aliquot 
f motions of the several sections would provide a useful administrative 
boundary. Since discrepancies up to one mile existed between actual 
land masses and the apparent representation of the same areas on the 
U. S. survey, Trustees* Staff recommended that dedication be made 
sub J not to any existing private riparian or other rights. Since the 
boundary for the dedication was adjusted to avoid foreseeable con- 
flicts it was not anticipated that the dedication would be adverse 
to any vested interest and that the character of the land, mangrove 
and marsh was such that preservation as a pub 1 lc park and wildlife 
refuge was In the best interest of the State of Florida. 

The areas designated for dedication were included in leases to the 
United States, administered currently by the U. 9. Fish and Wildlife 
Service, being Lease No. 99^- S, State Board of Education as to Sec- 
tion 16, and Lease No. 386 as to all other areas in the proposed 
dedication, which leases would expire respectively on June 30, 1965 



-8?- 11-20-62 



and June 30, 1966. Staff recommended that the Park Board, Board 
of Conservation and Game and Plfih Commission, during the unexpired 
term of said leasee, coordinate their activities In the dedicated 
areas with the Federal agency. 

Upon notion adopted by the Trustees or the Internal Improvement 
Kurd and the State Board of Education, concurrently, the above 
described land6 were designated as th" Jay H. (Ding} Darling 
Wildlife Sanctuary and were dedicated in perpetuity, subject to any 
existing private rights, for public park and wildlife sanctuary 
under supervision and management of Plorlda Board of Parks and 
Historic Memorials in cooperation with the Plorlda Board of Conserva- 
tion and Florida Game and Presh Water Pish Commission and granted the 
right to the Plorlda Board of Parks and Historic Memorials to enter 
Into agreement with Federal agencies subsequent to the expiration of 
Leases 99**-S and 386 subject to approval by Trustees and the Board 
of Education. The Trustees and the Board of Education further commended 
the efforts' of the Jay N. (Ding) Darling Memorial Coiwnlttee and the 
various other organizations and individuals which had evidenced Interest 
and support of the Sanctuary and directed that the following biographi- 
cal information be recorded in minutes of this date. 

Jay N. (Ding) Darling was born in Norwood, Michigan on 
October 21, I876. The son of a Congregational minister, 
he attended school in Elkhart, Indiana, Sioux City, Iowa, 
and, in 1900 graduated from Beloit (Wisconsin) College. 
He Joined the Des Koines (Iowa) Beglster as a cartoonist 
In 1906 and remained with that newspaper until his retire- 
ment in 19^9. His syndicated cartoons were carried dally in 
130 newspapers in all the then **S states. He won the Pulitzer 
Prize in X92U and again in 19^3. He was named best cartoonist by 
the country's leading editors in 193**. h *b interest in con- 
servation, his provocative hut always kindly cartoonB in the 
furtherenee of public interest led to his appointment by 
Franklin D. Boosevelt as Chief of the Biological Survey in 
Washington, D. C. In 193^ and 1935 he secured more than 1? 
million dollars for wildlife restoration. He fathered the 
Migratory Bird Conservation Comal be Ion. He ns honorary life 
president of the National Wildlife Pederatlon. He was presi- 
dent of "Ducks Unlimited." In 19^3 he received the Theodore 
Boosevelt Memorial Association's distinguished service medal. 
He sponsored the Migratory Bird Hunting Stamp Act of 193^ 
and etched the first duck stamp. In I960 he received the 
National Audubon's medal for distinguished service In the con- 
servation of natural resources. He was the first president 
or the National Wildlife Federation. At the time of his death 
in February 1962 he was working as co-chairman with Walt 
Disney on preparations for National Wildlife Week in March of 
that year. 

Jay Darling spent his winters on Captlva Island in Lee County, 
Florida, where he built a "fish house" on piers with a draw- 
bridge between the house and the shore. There with the draw- 
bridge up, he produced many of his best cartoons. During his 
twenty winters on Captlva he wandered on foot and by canoe all 
over adjoining Sanlbel. His fondest dream was the creation of 
a wildlife sanctuary on Sanlbel. 



PI HELLAS COUNTY - Pile No. 1047-52-253.12. Presented for further 
consideration was the application of Clrard W. Lane, as Trustee, 
to purchase a parcel of submerged land In St. Joseph Sound In 
Section 3. Township 28 South, Bange 15 East .appraised at $250.00 
per acre. Staff recommended approval of the bulkhead line fixed 
Hovember 10, I960 by Pinellas Count- * Water and navigation Control 
Authority. Staff suggested sale, subject to Trustees' Engineer 
approving the rill plan, or a reduced area of 55 acres maximum within 
the 99.19 acres advertised and approved for sale by the County

Range 15 East, who did not agree to the planned division of sub- 
merged land and objected to proposed filling. 

Engineer viuiam B. Kldd had node Investigation but was not pre- 
pared to recommend the division of submerged lands. George K. 
Klckllter, representing the applicant, mentioned agreement reached 
in a previous conference with Staff members and urged no further 
delay. 

Upon motion by Mr. Ervin, seconded by Mr. Larson and adopted, the 
Trustees referred to Mr. Kldd the further consideration of objections 
and requested that recommendation of an equitable division of the 
submerged areas be made at the next meeting. 



MANATEE COUNTY - File No. 1219-41-253. 12. Coral Shores Development 
C o rp o ration , abu 1 1 1 ng upland owners, represented by attorneys Bos In

in Barnes Sound 21 50 feet northeast of Division Point and 1750 
feet west from Main Key (recently sold at appraised price of |150.00

include provision that In the event of sale, dredging to obtain 
fill would be approved only in the area easterly of the parcel In 
water not less than six feet deep. In accordance with Board of 
Conservation recommendation. 



DADE COUNTY. - The Board considered further the matter of assignments 
of Contract No. 22903 by Charles P. Harvey, et al , to Florida Pat- 
sand Corporation and by Florida Patsand Corporation to Pirates Bay 
Marina, Inc., and also refund to Pirates Bay Marina, Inc., of 
tl?92.25, being overpayment as of the October 24, 1962 installment 
date by reason that the area of 193.76 acres stated In the contract 
was determined to be In error and the correct area was 178.21. The 
Board of County Commissioners of Dade County was advised of hearing 
on this date. 

Presenting the county's objections, J. 0. Phillips said that la 195* 
it appeared to the best interest of Dade County that the land be 
acquired for public purposes and the Trustees' indication of favoring 
the request was never rescinded, that until the deed was issued the 
Trustees could do as they saw fit. He asked that the matter be held 
In status quo until a date when the county could have the rights 
of the public presented. Reginald Walters of Dade County Planning 
Department discussed long range plans for recreational use of the 
Black Point area and a proposed causeway. 

Bruce Barfleld, representing contract holders, briefly reviewed 
the history of the property. Including past litigation, and expressed 
the opinion that the bulkhead line set by the county gave the private 
owners the right to improve their property under the bulkhead act. 
He said that plans mentioned by Mr. waiters might never come into 
fruition whereas the private owners were ready to develop, the con- 
tract was in good standing and should be honored. 

Attorney General Ervln proposed that because the situation had some 
clouded aspects which he thought should not be confirmed or advanced. 



.89- 11-20-62 



the Board sight offer to sell or grant to Dade County whatever 
interest the Trustees had In the area since the county Indicated It 
had a planned progrea for recreation and other public use. He was 
lo favor of conveying the land to the county subject to the con- 
tract so that all questions could be worked out or litigated 
between the county and the private parties. 



Director reviewed the county's request la 195* '<»>* a garbage 
site to which the Trustees reaction was favorable subject 
to the county negotiating with adjacent, private owners, where- 
upon no further action was shown in the records; subsequently sales 
were processed with the county waiving objections, the county fixed 
the bulkhead line which Trustees approved and reprocessed sale. 
Attention was called to Trustees procedure under Section 253,126 
precluding grants of areas riparian to private upland for public 
purposes without approval in writing of riparian owners. 

However, the Attorney General stated that in his opinion Sect loo 
253.126 did not prohibit the Trustees in every instance from con- 
veying or dedicating submerged lands needed for public projects 
to public agencies or local units unless consent of private upland 
proprietors had been obtained, but that the statute merely prevented 
any construction or extension or fill in such subaerged areas until 
such consents were obtained; and that in certain Instances It had 
been found that either the conveying, dedicating or withholding of 
such submerged areas In advance of securing such consents had helped 
facilitate certain public projects. 

Mr. Green considered that the Board had a bona fide contract with 
the applicants, and the county could proceed by condemnation. Hr. 
Larson noted that the approved Minutes did not show any agreement 
by the Trustees to grant the land to Eade County. 

Mr. Phillips* made report that the Cade Board, daring the hour, had 
adopted Resolution requesting that action on the Black Point contract 
to Harvey be deferred, and filed copy of the Resolution which had 
been prepared for the County Board* s consideration on this date. 

Motion was eade by the Attorney General that the land In Contract 
No. 22903 be conveyed to Cade County for public purposes subject 
to the contract rights, subject to a provision that any further monies 
paid under the contract would be paid to the Trustees, and subject 
to any existing riparian rights of other owners. The motion failed 
for lack of a second. 

Notion was eade by the Comptroller and adopted, with the Attorney 
General voting "No", that issuance of the two new contract e to the 
assignee, Pirates Bay Marina, Inc., superseding the original con- 
tract No. 22903, be approved for the record and that excess payment 
in the sum of f 1792. 25 be refunded in order that all accounts of the 
parties might be clearly In order as of the date October 24, 1962. 



DUVAX COUNTY - Complaints having been received concerning obstruc- 
ilons or portions of the Atlantic Ocean Beach both in and outside 
of municipalities in Duval County, the Trustees scheduled a hearing 
on this date and issued notices. Attention was directed to a recant 
eminent domain proceeding in the U. S. District Court by the United 
States on behalf of the Navy to take title to a section of beacs), 
and also to the fact that Special Acts of 1925 and subsequent years 
designated the foreshore as public highway under control of the 
• »rd of 



of County Commissioners outside the cities of Jacksonville Beach 
and Neptune Beach and a Special Act of 1929 which gave the City of Atlan- 
tic Beach control of beaches In that city. 

Judge V. Shannon Linn leg, speaking as a private citizen, said the 
Trustees should exercise their responsibility as title holders of 
the sovereignty lands to preserve public access to the beaches and 
he asked to be allowed to intervene as a citizen of Florida in the 
Navy's pending suit. Photographs of barriers exhibited on this 
date and statements In letters filed with the Trustees emphasized 
the cocrplamt that the public was deprived of freedom in the use 
of the beaches, especially the right of motor vehicular travel. 



11-20-62 -90- 



Duval County Attorney Henry Blount, Prank Thompson representing 
the City of Atlantic Beach, and Stephen Stratford representing 
the City of Jacksonville Beach, explained that control tea sure s 
were for the safety of the public and that accessible waterfront 
areas were available. 

The Board was in synpathy with Judge Llnnlng's position in 
desiring beaches retained for public usage but pointed out that 
there were legal problems Involved In the Legislative Acta and 
that the Federal Government through the Navy Department had 
expressed need for the offshore area for military purposes. 

Mo action was taken. 



ORANGE COUNTY - Upon motion by Mr. Larson, duly adopted, the 
Trustees authorized issuance of permit for $25.00 minimum charge 
to w. o. McLaughlin to remove 200 cubic yards of sand from 
bottoms of Lake Maltland to replace washed-out upland areas, sub- 
ject to recommendations of the Game and Fresh water Fish Commission. 



PIWELLAS COUWTY - John K. Peeney applied fir- perm It for a commercial 
pier In the Gulf of Mexico at his upland in Block 3 of Sawyers and 
Harrell's Addition to Boca Clega Pass Subdivision. Pinellas County 
Water and Navigation Control Authority granted permit and the 
proposed pier did not conflict with local zoning. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorised issuance of State 
Permit to applicant for I 100. 00 processing fee. 



PIWELLAS COUWTY - Berlantl Construction Company applied for permit 
ror yacht basir or marina in Boca Clega Bay at applicant's Tierra 
Verde development. Pinellas County Water and navigation Control 
Authority granted permit.

Permit to applicant for 1100.00 processing fee. 



VOLUSIA COUNTY . In meeting on June 17, 1952 the Trustees confirmed 
sale of a 1.3 acre parcel of submerged land in Indian Biver North 
to the then record owner of abutting upland, Edward P. Burke. The 
deed of conveyance erroneously described the parcel as lying and 
being in Section 49, Township 17 South, Bange yh East. Staff recom- 
■ended quitclaim deed to the present record owners, Marlon A. Baldwin 
et ax, without charge, the description therein to be corrected to 
show that the parcel was riparian to and abutting uplands in said 
Section 19, but retaining the statutory oil and mineral reservation. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, duly adopted, the Trustees authorised 
issuance of quitclaim deed as recommended.

of submerged land totaling 76.25 acres, nore or less, et Elliott 
Key In Sections 35 and 36, Township 57 South, Range «1 East. 
The appraised price of $300.00 per acre was offered for three 
contiguous parcels in the Atlantic Ocean comprising 29.1 acres, 
more or less, and the appraised price of $300.00 per acre was 
offered for three contiguous parcels in Biscayne Bay comprising 
^7.15 acres, more or less. The land was advertised for objections 
only in the Homestead News, proof of publication filed with the 
Trustees, and no protest to the aale was received. Central and 
Southern Florida Flood Control District waived oojectlons. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees confirmed sale of the 
advertised land to the applicants at the appraised prices. 



DADE COUNTY - File >>o . 121-J-13-253.12. On September 25, 1^62, the 
Trustees considered application by John V. . Campoell, represented 
by Hendricks and Hendricks, with offer of the appraised price of 
$3C0.Q0 per acre for purchase of a tract of submerged land In Bis- 
cayne Bay In Section 2, Township 56 South, Range *M3 Ea3t, contain- 
ing ^1.67 acres, more or less, within the established bulkhead 
line. The land was advertised for objections only in the KorceBtead 
News, proof of publication was riled with the Trustees, and no 
protest to the sale was received. 

The Board of County Commissioners of Dade Count;.' on November 20 
adopted Resolution No. 6138 requesting the Trustees to defer 
action for a period not to exceed i;C days to permit the county 
to complete a planning study currently in progress and to make 
report and recommendations to the Trustees . The Director stated 
that the bulkhead line was fixed by the county, the area could be 
sold only to the riparian upland owner and in the event the sub- 
merged land was not sold and any public work was located between 
tne shore and the bulkhead line, written consent of tne riparian 
upland owner was a pre -requisite to any authorization cv the 
Trustees for such work; that the resolution from the county did 
not contest private ownership of the waterfront. 

Attorney General Ervln expressed the opinion that the statutes in 
no wise precluded the Trustees from Tostering public development 
that required land areas and that where the Board had notice of 
plans by local governmental units, applications for sale should 
be deferred for evidence that it was a bona :'lde public project. 
He said that in cases of public need the Trustees could dedicate 
or grant to the public project with reverter clause s".d tnat the 
Board's policy of trying to balance rights of riparian owners 
against claims of need for public use should be followed. 
Although he realized there were strong reasons in behalf of 



11-27-62 



-92- 



private upland proprietors in many cases, he felt that decisions 
should be made in favor of local units for public purposes . He 
agreed with Commissioner Conner that the county should make a firm 
request within a reasonable time limit. 

B. E, Hendricks said his client was not connected with certain 
developera about which there were local objections, that If there 
was a plan to utilize the area the county should have contacted 
Mr. Campbell who as a civic minded citizen had given right of May 
for public use In the past. 

Upon motion by the Attorney Qeneral, duly adopted, the Trustees 
deferred action for thirty days within which time Engineer William 
R, Kldd would contact Dade County and request a definite plan and 
assurance that the planned public project would be carried out for 
the subject land.

stated the offer of $1500.00 and no further bids were received.

BULKHEAD LINES 

BREVARD COUNTY - On November 21, 1962, the Board of County Com- 
missioners amended a portion of its bulkhead line originally 
established one foot offshore, the new line beginning at the north 
end of the previously fixed bulkhead line of Venetian Way and 
running north 400.33 feet and thence northeast 2199.9 feet to the 
shore of the river. The northeasterly course of the new line 
passed approximately 700 feet southeasterly from the margin of Hall 
Island which was not provided with a bulkhead line, presumably In 
the Interest of its preservation as a bird or wildlife area. The 
county had conducted several hearings. Objections were filed by 
Mrs. V. P. whitehead, Mrs. H. J. Gaertner, W. A. Dun eon and others 
opposing damage to scenic and conservation values in the area. 

Director A. D. Aldrlch of the State Game and Fresh Water Pish 
Commission explained that while Hall Island previously had been 
established as a reservation and closed against hunting and fishing 
by order of the Commission, land ownership remained vested In the 
Trustees, He recommended dedication by the Trustees as a wild life 
sanctuary , 

Under Trustees' Pile No. 1177-05-253.12. the Board of Public 
Instruction, riparian upland owner, filed application for 12 acres 
of submerged Banana River sovereignty land between the bulkhead 
line fixed by the county on November 21, 1962, and applicant's 
upland Block 36 Cocoa Ocean Beach, The land was advertised for 
objections only and on August 28 the Trustees deferred action for 
study of allocation which might be planned for private owners In 
the event a new bulkhead line was established. The Board of Public 



-105- 12-18-62 



Instruction, for public school purposes, was exempt from require- 
ment, of a bulkhead line but the upland owner next north. Bishop 
Joseph P. Hurley, desired assurance that provision would be made 
for a like extension for the property of his Church, for which a 
bulkhead line would be necessary. Attorney Prank Pierce, repre- 
senting the Bishop, said there rare no specific plans by the 
Diocese but a need was anticipated for enlargement of church and 
educational facilities. 

The Staff recommended approval of the new bulkhead line, or at 
least the southerly 9^0 linear feet in order that (1) Bishop 
Hurley might be given reasonable assurance of favorable considera- 
tion In the event he made application to purchase a strip 500 feet 
wide bounded south by projection of Duval lane, (2) that the grant 
be made to the Board of Public Instruction without prejudice to any 
rights of Blfthop Hurley, and (3) that grant be confirmed to the 
Board of Public Instruction for public school purposes only with 
provision for reversion In the event of five consecutive years of 
non-use for such purpose, the deed to contain the usual reserva- 
tion of 50* of petroleum and 753* of minerals. 

Attorney General Ervin questioned the use for school purposes of the 
strip proposed to be filled and requested Information as to the 
Church plans. In view of the protests against disturbing scenic 
and wildlife values, he recommended deferment for further staff 
investigation of the Hall island and application areas. The 
Board indicated approval of the proposed dedication of the island 
as a wild life sanctuary, and the consensus was that while the 
County School Board application had been pending for some time, 
the additional delay for checking on the ground was desirable. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees' Engineer was directed 
to investigate and report back to the Board. 



DADE COUNTY - Referred to the Trustees for approval was a revised 
bulkhead line for Virginia Key established by Dade County Resolu- 
tion No. 8108 dated November 20, 1962, at the request of the City 
Commission of Miami by Resolution No. 3312? dated October 18, 
1961. The Trustees examined the map submitted by the county, 
noted that the new line encompassed an extensive area of open 
water northwest and west of the bulkhead line originally approved 
August 19, I960, and that no private properties were involved in 
the tone where public works were anticipated. Attorney Oeneral 
Ervln expressed the opinion that a bulkhead line was not needed 
for public works and might possibly lead to use of the extensive 
area for private purposes, and that the Trustees could grant to 
the city areas needed for public purposes. 

The consensus was to withhold approval of the revised bulkhead 
Una and to advise the City of Miami and Dade County that no 
bulkhead line was needed for public works and that the Trustees 
would give favorable consideration to application for areas 
required for public purposes.

BOARD OF CONSERVATION AND TRUSTEES - The Board of Conservation 
Eubmltted proposed lease to East Bay Enterprises, Inc., for 
removal of shell from that part of Greater Tampa Bay Inside or 
north and east of the Sunshine Skyway, including Old Tampa Bay 
and Hillsborough Bay. The lease Included submerged lands vested 
In the HlllBborough County Port Authority and was prepared for 

Joint execution by the Trustees and the Authority. Boyalty of 
0.20 per ton was required with annual minimum of $5000.00 and 
surety bond of tl 0,000. 00. The Trustees ' Director recommended 
that the text be amended subject to approval of the Attorney 
General to provide that It would not be operative as to submerged 
areas between the mean high water line and any bulkhead line 
heretofore or herearter established and that the lease be aede 
•subject to rights of riparian upland owners who purchased submerged 
lands within established bulkhead lines to secure fill material 
bay ward of 6uch bulkhead lines pursuant to authorization of proper 
permit. 

Formal protest was filed by Coastal Petrol eun Company which 
claimed Its lease covered the material to be removed. 

Upon motion made by Mr. Green, seconded by Mr. Larson and 
unanimously adopted, the Trustees overruled the objection of 
Coastal Petrol euro Company and concurred In action of the Board 
of Conservation approving the lease to East Bay Enterprises, Inc., 
subject to Inclusion in the lease of an additional provision that 
nothing therein should preclude the Trustees of the Internal 
Improvement Fund from selling and conveying, free and clear of 
any right b granted thereunder, any lands presently within an 
established bulkhead line or which might be Included within bulk- 
head lines established In the future. 



CHARLOTTE, LEE. COLLIER, PALP BEACH AND GLADES COUNTIES _ Minutes 
of the Board of Conservation meeting of October 30, 1962. showed 
approval of a proposed deed shell lease in favor of Mart In- Marietta 
Corporation. The areas leased and the provisions were not reviewed 
by the Trustees' staff until after copy of the lea6e was furnished 
to the office of the Trustees on November 2, and the lease was 
presented on this date for action by the Trustees as a Board. 

The lease covered (1) all submerged lands "to the mean high water 
mark of marine and estuarlne waters within the statutory boundaries 
of Charlotte and Lee Counties" with exception of areas covered by 
shell leases 13****, 150*. 168U; (2) ell the submerged area to the 
mean high water mark In the Cape Romano area outside the boundaries 
of Everglades National Park South from 26° North latitude, bounded 
west by 81"50' West longitude and on the East by 3l"31' West longi- 
tude; and (3) all the submerged area to the mean high water mark 
of Lake Okeechobee North of Latitude 2?" North and of the Caloosa- 
hatchee River to the mean high water mark between Lake Okeechobee 
and San Carlos Bay. The lease purported to Include submerged lands 
to the shores of private upland within established bulkhead lines 
and allowed the taking of "shell and calcium carbonate and other 
related Materials" (other materials not defined). Trustees'

Director requested directive as to whether sales thereafter pro- 
cessed of areas within bulkhead lines should be deeded subject 
to the Mart in- Marietta lease and whether releases from said firm 
should be required for any dredging to obtain fill or to Improve 
navigation within the areas leased in the coastal and lntracoastal 
waters. 

Upon motion by the Attorney General, seconded by the Treasurer, 
the Trustees authorized Inclusion In the proposed lease of the 
same additional provision approved for the shell lease granted 
above to another applicant, being that nothing therein should 
preclude the Trustees of the Internal Improvement Fund from 
selling and conveying, free and clear of any rights granted 
thereunder, any lands presently within an established bulkhead 
line or which might be Included within bulkhead lines established 
in the future. 

The Trustees considered protests filed by Coastal Petroleum 
Company, represented by Julius P. Parker, and by Julius F. 
Parker, Jr., stock holder In C&rlbbean Oils, who objected as to 
areas 1 and 3. The objectors insisted that Coastal held the 
mineral rights under State Drilling Leases which had been con- 
strued by the courts to include minerals other than oil end gas, 
that Coastal had expended large amounts In rentals to the state. 
In exploration and drilling operations, that in the Okeechobee 
area the material to be recovered would not be the usual oyster 
shells but calcium carbonate mineral claimed under the court 
decisions, also that areas covered by Coastal* b leases had 
been sold by the Trustees and allowed to be filled, some of 
which areas had been explored and offered great potential value 
to the company. 

Attorney General Err In argued that the minerals claimed by 
Coastal under the state drilling leases were never contemplated 
by the Trustees but only those minerals which came up through 
the bore holes, that the court did not expand the drilling of 
bore holes to Include dredging, open pit or dragline removal 
and no royalty was established for miscellaneous materials, that 
In the Instant case the Board did not consider the dead shell 
material to be covered by the drilling leases end he recommended 
granting the proposed lease to the applicant, Mart in- Marietta 
Corporation, that he felt that the questions on which the court 
decisions were against the state should be relltlgated, Including 
rights claimed by Coastal over upland proprietors* rights to 
fill out in front of their properties. 

Governor Bryant said he recognised that Coastal had done a good 
Job exploring, testing and drilling, probably due to the favorable 
nature of the lease but the state could not abandon the right to 
teBt the validity of Its claims. 

It was the consensus of the Board that the objections be over- 
ruled and Issuance of the dead shell lease with the provision 
approved on this date be authorized in favor of Martin-Marietta 
Corporation, In concurrence with action by the Board of Conser- 
vation.

turning basin. The project was authorized by U. S. Public Law 
81-516 approved May 1?, 1950. 

Prior to the county request, copies of protests filed with U. S. 
Army Corps of Engineers by Home Port Marina, Maxwell T. Reed, 
Walter K. Prior and Minnow Creek Marine Ways, were filed with 
the Trustees and at the suggestion of the Staff, Pinellas County 
Water and Navigation Control Authority published notice and con- 
ducted a public hearing at which there were no objections. Inas- 
much as the public waters were Inalienably impressed with the 
servitude of counterce and navigation, which were matters under the 
Jurisdiction of the Corps of Engineers, there appeared no basis 
for denial of the county's request and Staff recommendation was 
that the objections filed with the Trustees be overruled and authori- 
zation granted for Issuance of the easement in form approved by the 
Attorney General.

COLLIER COUNTY - File No. 1257-11-253.12. 
cation to Purchase. 



Bulkhead Line and Appll- 



Presented for consideration was a revised bulkhead line fixed by 
City of Naples Resolution No. 965 adopted November ?, 1962, super- 
seding end located 50 feet further east and 100 feet further south 
in Naples Bay than the original line fixed by City Resolution No. 
753 approved by Trustees September 15. 1959. The submerged land 
within the original line was sold to the Naples Yacht Club and the 
area was filled. 

Proponents of the new bulkhead line emphasized need for extension 
of the Yacht Club facilities by purchase of additional upland from 
B. W. Morris, Jr., and acquisition of additional submerged land for 
filling and development. The new bulkhead line was fixed with a 
condition that dockage or mooring by upland owners on southerly 
portion of the line should be limited to parallel single alongside 
dockage or mooring. 

The revised bulkhead line was not recommended by the Staff, which 
considered the objections valid, especially that of the owner of 
residential property fronting the contemplated extension less than 
150 feet distant from it. Staff felt that the previously established 
bulkhead line at the Yacht Club constituted the maximum encroach- 
ment on the bay which would be allowed, that the special provision 
for single parallel mooring indicated that the contemplated fill 
would not leave desirable clearance for boat traffic. 

Naples City Attorney Cavid C. Splngler spoke on behalf of the 
revised bulkhead line and application and discussed the need of 
the olub to enlarge Its facilities which were a community asset. 
Application to purchase was made by B. w, Morris, Jr., and Naples 
Yacht Club, Ine, with offer of $650 per acre (no recent appraisal) 
for 0.975 aore of submerged land In teples Bey between their 
uplands at Aqua lane Shores and the revised line. 

Richard D. DeBoest, representing protesting owners, said that the 
proposal for the benefit of members of a private club would 
restrict the view and devalue objectors' waterfront residential 
property, create a boat traffic hazard, and dredging would endanger 
seawalls. He stated that objections to the original line and sale 
were withdrawn when assurance was given that no further extension 
would be made.

■ 118- 



Attorney General Err In questioned the interested parties, and 
the applicant's representative agreed to withdraw from the 
application the 50 foot parcel on the east end. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, duly adopted, the Trustees directed 
that the natter he withheld pending nodlficatlon of the area 
to exclude the 50 foot parcel on the east, investigation and 
appraisal by the Trustees' Staff. 



BREVABD COUNTY - The City of Indlalantlc by Besolutlon No. 4-62 
adopted September 25, 1962, requested grant of 0.58 acre of 
sovereignty land In Section 36, Township 2? South, Bange 37 East, 
for public municipal purposes In connection with use of the clty'i 
upland for construction of a new Town Hall and Administration 
Building which would be financed by a mortgage. Advisory memoran- 
dum of the Attorney General cited necessity of fee simple title 
In event the parcel was to be pledged as mortgage security, the 
requirement of compliance with Section 6 Article IX of Florida 
Constitution, and recommended that In lieu of the usual reverter 
clause, the deed contain provision that no sale of the property 
should be made without approval by the Trustees of the sale and 
the application to be made of sale proceeds. The city accepted 
those conditions. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees approved conveyance with 
the deed provision recommended by the Attorney General, waived 
advertisement for objections, and authorized the city to proceed 
with dredging to obtain fill for the site froa an area approved 
by the U. S, Engineers which would not Infringe on any rights of 
the State Boad Department or private riparian owners. 



MISCELLANEOUS 



DADE COUHTY - Without objection, the Trustees formally approved 
the rill permit issued to Dr. Sanel Beer by the City of Miami 
on November 7, 1962, to fill an 0.38 acre parcel of submerged 
land in Dade County conveyed by Trustees under Pile No. 1106-13- 
253.12. 



HAHDEE COUNTY - Without objection, the Trustees approved dedica- 
tlon to the state Bead Department of a parcel of submerged river 
bottom land in Peace River In Section 11, Township ><t South, 
Bange 25 East, for road and bridge construction purposes, and 
also a temporary easement for dredging in a borrow area at the 
same location. The consent of upland riparian owners was secured 
by the Boad Department. 



MAN ATEE COUNTY - Application was made by D. 0. Haley on behalf 
of Laura E. Belnacher for Trustees to survey and determine the 
boundaries and character of a salt mangrove area in front of 
applicant's upland bordering Tampa Bay, applicant being the owner 
of Government Lot 8 of Section 34, Township 33 South, Bangs 17 
East, such survey to be made at applicant's expense by a surveyor 
designated by Trustees, and without prejudice or effect on valid 
existing proprietary rights of applicant or others. Applicant held 
title under 0. S. Patent issued to her predecessor November 4, 1889 
in accordance with the official U. S. Survey approved November 8, 
1858. The U. S. Survey township maps of Townships 33 and J**, Bange 
17, showed a number of unsurveyed salt marsh and mangrove flats, one 
adjacent to the meandered shore line of applicant's upland, to 
which riparian rights would normally attach by reason of her upland, 
but the unsurveyed area being adjacent to applicant's upland raised 
question as to whether her ownership fronted the public waters of 
the Bay. 

Pursuant to a swamp and overflow land selection by an agent of the 
Trustees, the United States patented to the state "the unsurveyed 
parts" of Townships 33 and 3*» Bange 17, estimated to contain 600 
acres and 1*00 acres, respectively (Tampa Series Patent No. 33 



-119- 1-8-63 



dated Nov. 26, 1884, five rears after patent of the surveyed 
upland to applicant's predecessor) . The unsurveyed parte ot the 
two townships "containing 1000 acres" were conveyed by Trustees 
Jan. 17, 1890 to Cecil H. Alleyne, et al , for 11.00 per acre 
[Deed Ho. 14099). 

Brief accompanying application cited authority of the state, under 
court decisions, to determine whether such unsurveyed areas were 
sovereignty tldelands or public lands and to determine the extent 
of title and rights of riparian owners, exempt from adverse Judi- 
cial scrutiny. Since the unsurveyed areas were patented by ths 
United States to and sold by the State of Florida, the United 
States was not obligated to survey and fix the Units of sovereignty 
lands In relation to any swamp end overflowed areaB Included In 
the 1884 patent nor to define the boundaries of the unsurveyed 
areas so patented, and official determination by a thorough field 
examination or survey made by or under direction of the state at 
applicant's expense, with reference to character of the area in 
front of and adjacent to applicant's upland and without prejudice 
to any owner's rights, appeared to be Justified. 

Staff recommended field examination under direction of Trustees 
by contract with a Florida registered land surveyor In the area 
upon applicant depositing the sum necessary to pay the costs of 
the survey to be made without prejudice to any owner's rights, 
to show the nature of the mangrove flat in front of applicant's 
upland, whether sovereignty or swamp and overflow land, or both, 
and to define by survey the boundaries of land In such area, If 
any, which properly was subject to classification as Bwamp and 
overflowed land, and that in event lands properly swamp and over- 
flowed were surveyed and mapped and filed with the notes of the 
field survey, the same should be checked by the Trustees' Cadastral 
Surveyor and if in order in all respects should be approved by 
him subject to acceptance by Trustees as an official state survey. 
Freeman H. Horton was suggested for consideration as the surveyor 
to make the field examination and/or survey under direction of the 
Trustees* engineering staff. 

Upon motion by fir. la r son, duly adopted, the recommendations of the 
staff were approved as the action of the Board, 



MARTIH COUNTY - Without objection, the Trustees approved dedlca- 
tlon to the state fioad Department of two parcels of submerged 
land in the St. Lucie Biver in Section 5, Township 38 South, Range 
41 East, for road construction purposes, the consent of abutting 
riparian owners having been secured by the Department, 



CART IN COUNTY - Engineer William R. Kidd reported on Inspection of 
serious erosion damage at the Town of Jupiter Island which called 
for Immediate protective measures. He conferred with city officials 
and said that agreement had been reached to submit a plan for the 
entire Island approved by the Coastal Engineering Laboratory. In 
the meantime, he recommended that the Board authorize issuance of 
emergency permits as applied for by owners planning beach nourish- 
ment and certain other protective measures. 

Upon motion by Kr. Larson, duly adopted, the Trustees gave the 
Director authority to Issue permits for emergency control measures 
deemed immediately necessary to protect properties from further 
erosion. 



SARASOTA COUKTY - Without objection, the Trustees formally approved 
fill permit Issued December 26, 1962, by the Town of Longboat Key to

BBEVABD COUNTY . By Resolution adopted December 20, 1962, the 
Board of County Cottanl as loners of Brevard County requested that 
Hall Island In Section 27, Township 24 South, Ranee 37 East and 
adjacent submerged land bordering and within 230 feet of the tra- 
verse of the Island perimeter be dedicated in perpetuity as a 
bird or wildlife sanctuary under the supervision and control of the 
County Board. Inclusion of the submerged land bordering the tra- 
verse was understood to have been requested to assure preservation 
of the Island against damage by dredging In the zone. The legal 
description and traverse bj the office of the County Engineer 
encompassed approximately 10 acres. The sovereignty marsh island 
oass was approximately 700 feet westerly from the nearest upland 
and approximately 700 feet fron the bulkhead line In the Banana 
Blver fixed by the county on November 21, 1962, which was presented 
to the Trustees for approval on this date {see below}. Hr Kidd 
inspected the area and verified that the island was a valuable nature 
preserve. His recommendation that no permits for dredging within 
400 feet of Hall Island be honored by the Trustees was discussed 
and approved by the Board. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees granted the request of 
Brevard County and authorized dedication of Hall Island and the 
marginal submerged land within 230 feet of the perimeter traverse, 
without prejudice to public rights in the open water, in perpetuity 
as a wildlife sanctuary under supervision and control of the County 
Commission, with provision for reversion in event of non-use or 
use for other purposes. 



BBEVARp COUNTY - Bulkhead Line. Deferred on December 18 and 
presented for further consideration on this date was the amended 
bulkhead line fixed by Brevard County Commission on November 21, 
1962, located in the Banana Blver beginning at the northerly and 
of the bulkhead line previously established for the Venetian Way 
development north of the Causeway to State Road 520 (sold In 1955 
and under development prior to passage of the Bulkhead Act). The 
line proceeded northerly approximately 400 feet as projection of 
the established bulkhead line and said segment was the westerly 
boundary of the parcel applied for by the Board of Public Instruc- 
tion on this date; then the line was angled North 41*56*45" East 
to the shore approximately 700 feet southeast of Hall Island. 
Dr. Kldd Inspected the area and verified that the sawtooth pattern 
of the existing bulkhead line was undesirable, that the new bulk- 
head line mat the existing line and then proceeded to the shore 
and In his Judgment the line could not be extended from the 
present line to the shore in a more practicable manner. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees formally approved the 
amended bulkhead line fixed by Brevard County on November 21, 1962,

transition froa the offshore Halt previously fixed south of the 
School Board area to the shore east of Hell Island. Pursuant to 
direction on Dec caber 18 by the Trustees, investigation on the 
ground was aade by Engineer Kidd who recommended approval of the 
bulkhead line, dedication of Ball Island and restriction of dredging. 
The School Board advised that the urgently needed site was three 
alles north of the present school site and Ideally located , and 
that upland of adequate size was not available in the lamed late

I teak Walton League, Florida Keys Chapter, protested that an active 
bald eagle's nest on the middle key (verified by Information from 
the National Audubon Society) and bird rookeries should be protected. 
The area was about one mile from Overseas Highway and Everglades 
National Park, 

Garland Budd for a client, Chester F. Tlngler, offered 1250.00 per 
acre for purchase of the two upper keys as an upland owner but stated 
that his client felt that the area should not be sold at all but 
held by the state for wildlife and public recreational purposes. 

Governor Bryant and Treasurer Larson expressed their opinions that 
the Islands and submerged lands should not be Bold. Comment was 
made that the advertisement was for the purpose of securing expres- 
sions and Information, To comply with the sale notice, the land was 
called out end high bid of $155.00 per acre was received from W. P. 
Carrln.

PAL*, BEACH COUNT* - Before presenting Palm Beach County land appll- 
cations, the Director called attention to Resolution No.l adopted 
January 8, 1963 by Palm Beach County Chapter of Izaak Walton League 
of America, Inc., which recited that continued sale of submerged 
lands and permits to fill Lake Worth damaged natural marine resources 
and feeding grounds for water fowls, narrowed accessibility to the 
waters for fishing and recreation, and resolved (1) that no further 
conveyances of submerged lands be made in Lake Worth, (2) that no 
permits be Issued for dredging or filling along the shoreline, and 
(3) that the Palm Beach Chapter of the League was unalterably opposed 
to the proposed Outer Flagler Drive presently outlined by the City 
of West Palm Beach which required acquisition of submerged lands In 
Lake Worth. 



1-22-63 -124- 



The Trustees expressed appreciation of the alms of the League 
but suggested that since Bales and filling were United by the 
bulkhead lines fixed by the local governing body, the Chapter 
could initiate action at the local level for amending the bulk- 
head lines. The Trustees deferred action for sixty days on two 
applications (Pile Nos. 1088-50-253,12. and 1260- 50-253. 12) for 
purchase of submerged lands at Boynton Beach to allow the Chapter 
to seek revision of the existing bulkhead line.

appraised value. The land was advertised for objections only in 
the Palm Beach Post, proof of publication filed with the Trustees , 
and no protest was filed. Central and Southern Florida Flood 
Control District waived objection.

MABTIN COUNTY - On January 8 the Trustees authorized issuance 
of permits for emergency control works to combat erosion at

including the six-mile Jupiter Island zone opposite Hobe Sound, 
had a history of erosion with Increased average loss fron 1956 
to i960 as high as eleven feet per year in some areas. In 1956 
and I960 the Coastal Engineering Laboratory recommended measures 
to be taken, and another report made In November 1962 stated that 
the town had taken more positive action on remedial measures than 
most municipalities in Florida but that more comprehensive action 
was needed with reference to large-scale artificial nourishment 
and replacement of vertical walls by sloping energy -absorbing walls. 
The Director reviewed reports and Information regarding the situa- 
tion, including works constructed at the Beach Club property of 
the Hobe Sound Company where the Laboratory recommended adjust- 
ment of groins and certain limitations for works constructed under 
the emergency peralt. 

The Staff was advised that the Town had engaged a consulting engineer, 
would undertake Immediately to pump in 60,000 cubic yards of sand, 
that adjustment of the groins should not be necessary; they would 
develop an overall plan possibly with format ion of an Erosion 
District. Town authorities stated that their Jurlsdlcatlon was 
limited by the high water nark of the Atlantic Ocean. 

The owners of the Beach Club property were not in agreement with 
the Laboratory's recommendations for adjustment of groins. Bobert 
Ervln, representing thirteen land owners, indicated that differences 
of professional opinions between the Coastal Laboratory and Con- 



1-22-63 -128- 



suiting Engineer Herbert C. Gee were holding up emergency natures 
to protect Ma clients* properties and that they had full confidence 
In Col. Gee's ability. Col. Gee discussed the situation and said 
that the Hal tat Ions recommended by the Laboratory for height and 
length of new groins made construction Impossible under the circum- 
stances and that his plans would work effectively to combat erosion. 

The Board heard Col. Gee explain the problems and questioned 
whether his proposed construction would damage properties down the 
beach. Mr. Green stated that the Trustees depended on the Coastal 
Engineering Laboratory for expert advice and had spent considerable 
•urns for beach preservation under provisions of Section 253, 65 F.S, 
The Board was not in a position to make a determination on engineer- 
ing questions and Attorney General Ervln suggested that Col. Gee 
try to work out the immediate problem with Dr. Per Bruun of the 
Laboratory with the assistance of the Trustees' Engineer. 

Robert Ervln agreed and said he hoped his clients would not have to 
come back to the Board. 

Upon motion by the Attorney General, duly adopted, the Trustees 
directed Hr. Kldd to work with Col. Geo and Dr. Bruun toward a 

solution of the problem.

DADE COUNTY - Bulkhead Line. Presented Tor approval was the bulk- 
head line flied by City of Miami Beach Resolution No. 10598 adopted 
July 21, 1961, for the easterly side of Indian Creek opposite Lots 
1 through 231, First Ocean Front Subdivision, There were no 
objections at the local public hearing and none were filed with the 
Trustees. The line, fixed In reeocnitlon of the necessity for 
widening of Collins Avenue, was considered conservative and practi- 
cable by the Trustees* Staff, 

The Board examined the bulkhead line map and aerial photographs 
and considered the city's request fr>r grant of the submerged land 
out to the bulkhead line in connection with the highway widening 
project. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees formally approved the tulk- 
head line established by City of Fiael Beach Resolution Ko. 1059? 
of July 21, 1961.

-131- 1-29-63 



purchase of a atrip of submerged land between the proposed 130-foot 
right of way for Col Una Avenue and the bulkhead line formally 
aporeved by the Trustees on this date (above). The submerged land 
aggregating 2 aorea varying in width rrom 3 or k feet to 87.1 feet 
would be conveyed to the 18 riparian owners of property east of 
and abutting Collins Avenue (Lots 1 to 30 and 23 1) who were also 
owners of small upland "outlets" between the existing Collins 
Avenue and Indian Creek aggregating about *t acres acquired by the 
oity by agreements whereunder new outlot parcels would be acquired, 
filled and conveyed to the 18 riparian owners so that after the 
project was completed each owner would still have an outlot parcel 
between the newly widened highway and the waters of Indian Creak. 
The City of Miami Beach Indicated that aoquialtion of the private 
out lots was not feasible on any other basis. Mr. Ben Shepherd, 
presenting the city's request, said that the 18 outlot parcels would 
be used for beau t if 1 cation and It was agreeable to have the con- 
veyance restrict buildings or commercial activities. The city 
offered to pay on the basis of 1100.00 for each deed, total 
$1800.00 for the 18 new outlot parcels. The conveyance by the 
Trustees would be subject to usual reservation of one-half of 
petroleum and three-fourths of minerals. 

Upon notion duly adopted, the Trustees approved dedioatlon or 
easement for public road purposes covering the strip of submerged 
land required to widen Collins Avenue to 130 feet In width, and 
approved the city's request for conveyance of the 18 paroals of 
submerged land aggregating 2 acres, more or leas, for the sum of 
$1800.00 subject to advertisement of the sale for objections only 
with costs paid by the city, and subject to clause in the deeds to 
the 18 upland owners restricting the outlot parcels from any 
buildings or commercial activities. 



PA R E E Q UI TY - A. P. Crouch, of the City of Miami Engineering 
Department, was present on behalf of request of the city for formal 
approval of the amended bulkhead line fixed by Dade County Resolu- 
tion Mo. 8108 adopted November 20, 1962, pursuant to City Resolution 
Ho. 33127 adopted October 18, 1961, which line encompassed an 
extensive area of open water northwest and west of the bulkhead 
line for Virginia Key approved August 18,1960. On December 18, 
1962, the Trustees withheld approval for the reason that no bulk- 
head line was necessary for public works. 

Mr. Crouch explained that the city desired its public facilities 
to conform to an orderly system of bulkhead lines in the Bay notwith- 
standing the statutory exemption of public works from the requirement 
of such lines. The sovereignty lands within the bulkhead line 
were shown to be bald by the city under various grants from the 
State of Florida which restricted use of one area for airport and 
harbor purposes, other areas for public and municipal purposes. 
The city's plan for use of its lands on Virginia Key and within 
the amended bulkhead line was displayed, including a marine 
stadium northerly of Rickenbacker Causeway approximately one mile 
long extending northwesterly and about 2800 feet wide, a conserva- 
tion area for recreational and other public uses, expansion of the 
city's sewage treatment plant site and a beach area. 

The Trustees were assured that fixing bulkhead lines for the city's 
development and facilities would not be the basis for any future 
conversion to private ownership or use, nor for private extensions. 
Mr. Crouch advised that the city desired to proceed with construction 
of the marine stadium under a bond issue. 

After discussion, motion was made by Mr. Green, seconded and adopted, 
that the amended bulkhead line be approved, that the limitations 
on use of the sovereignty lands granted by Trustees* Deed Noe. 18030, 
18450 and 16730-A be made uniform by amendment for public municipal 
purposes only but subject to requirement of advance formal approval 
by the Trustees as to the specific public municipal use, also that 
the intended use of the southerly portion of the area northerly of 
Rickenbacker Causeway for a municipal marine stadium be approved.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY - The Trustees on January 22 deferred action 
on modification or bulkhead line for the easterly shore of Indian 
River in Sections 20, 28, 29 and 33 1 Township 30 South, Ranee 39 
East, which was fixed September 6, 1962 by the Board of County 
Commissioners to follow the shore In Sections 20 and 29 and then 
proceed south-southeasterly on a straight course approximately 
parallel to the Atlantic Ocean Shore. The upland In some areas 
was about 250 feet wide between the Ocean and River. Modification 
of the bulkheed line would enable the county to carry out an obli- 
gation with respect to projection of State Road AIA southerly froa 
Sebastian Inlet upon the existing narrow strip of upland. The 
Trustees on February 27, 1962 adopted Resolution agreeing to 
dedicate the required right of way on submerged land conditioned 
upon the county fully complying with statutory requirements with 
reference to the riparian owners, the dedication to be such that 
the grant for the road should not foreclose or abrogate statutory 
rights of riparian owners. The amendment of the bulkhead line 
and preservation of private riparian rights was deemed by the 
county to be necessary to acquisition of the right of way for 
the state road extension, and the filling would stabilize a long 
area which In the natural state might become subject to break- 
through by storm tides. 

Interested parties from Indian River County, Including Representa- 
tive Art Karat, County Commissioner Robert W. Graves, Jack Jennings 
with Carter Engineering firm, County Attorney John R. Gould and 
Assistant County Attorney Charles Herring, stressed the Importance 
to the area of State Road AIA, that the county, without funds to 
purchase 3i miles of right of way, had to assure riparian rights 
to the upland owners who donated the right of way. 

Attorney General Ervin said that private owners should not be 
allowed to "barnacle" along the highway by purchasing and filling 
submerged areas between the right of way and the bulkhead line, 
that the situation was undesirable and a mistake had been made. 
Governor Bryant and other members recognized the value of the road 
but also expressed concern at the lack of access, public beaches 
and loss of scenic values, fr. Conner requested that the county 
plan for some public areas to be acquired possibly by condemnation 
or by designation when fill plans were presented for approval. 

In view of the urgent request by the county and the planning in 
line with agreement expressed by representatives of the county. 
State Road Department, and Trustees pursuant to conference February 
19, 1962, and Resolution recorded in Trustees ■ minutes, on motion 
by Mr. Ervin, duly adopted, the Board formally approved the amended 
bulkhead line fixed by the county September 6, 1962. 



P»LH BEACH COUKTY - Upon motion adopted without objection, the 
Trustees authorized issuance of perpetual easement requested by 
Central and Southern Florida Flood Control District for canal 
right of way purposes over a parcel of submerged land In lake 
Worth In Section 22, Township ^5 South, Range 43 East, the parcel 
containing 3-53 acres being within the lakeward extension of the 
right of way for Boy n ton Canal (Canal C-16). 



PALE BEACH COUNT r - File No. 1273-50-253.129. Application was 
made for disclaimer to Robert L. Steam, et al, covering a parcel 
of land filled under Department of Army Permit 600.61 (55-2010 
Issued December 20, 1955, under which the filling waa completed 
during the term of the original permit which expired December 31, 
1958. Trustees waived objection to the filling whloh proceeded 
under the Butler Act (Section 271.01 Florida Statutes). Passage 
of the bulkhead law June 11, 1957 was not retroactive and did not 
extinguish the right to fill under the permit term in affect on 
June 11, 1957. Under Section 253. 129 title to lands filled prior 
to said date, in Palm Beach and Dade Counties, was confirmed and 
Trustees were required to issue disclaimer to owner. 



-133- 1-29-63 



Upon notion duly adopted, the Trustees authorized issuance of 
disclaimer under Section 253.129 in fora provided by the Attorney 

General for |10,00 handling charge. 



BFOTIBP gOVliTY - Senator A. J. Ryan, Jr., on behalf of the City of 
Deerfleld Beach, requested #50,000.00 for construction of control 
works Immediately In areas where erosion was critical. He said 
that the Trustees had made funds available previously which were 
watched by local funds for works recommended and designed by Dr. 
Per Bruun of the Coastal Engineering Laboratory which had proved 
■ost successful and some beach areas had been restored, that the 
study completed by the Corps of Engineers showed that offshore 
erosion in the Deerfleld Beach zone was probably the worst In 
Florida, that Broward County had undertaken an overall program for 
which funds would be available In November, Including matching federal 
funds, a tax levy for the purpose, and special assessments for 
owners In the affected zones. 

The Trustees previously made available $65,000 to the City of Deer- 
fleld Beach, also participated In the overall erosion study of 
Broward County made by the United States Corps of Engineers, and 
little remained for the rest of the state from the 1300,000 provided 
for erosion projects under Section 253.65. Under authorized proce- 
dures, local funds were required to be deposited to match each 
advance of Trustees* funds and in this oaae the city did not have 
the funds. Attorney General Ervln recommended that Trustees' Fund 
be granted outright, not under Section 253-65. and Comptroller Green 
recommended that half of the amount be a loan. 

Upon motion by Mr. Ervln, duly adopted, the Trustees agreed to 
furnish $50,000.00 for beach erosion control purposes to the City 
of Deerfleld Beach, $25,000 as a grant and $25,000 as a loan to be 
repaid In two years, with a contract to be prepared between the 
city and the Trustees. 



TRUSTEES' FlfKDS - Governor Bryant reported that acting on the 
Board's informal Instructions, he had accepted the proposal of 
the General Services Administration of the United States for sale 
of the deactivated Green Cove Springs Naval Base property on the 
St. Johns River, 1537 acres and Improvements, for $621,400.00. 
He asked that the Attorney General's office work with Director Wen- 
dell Jarrard of the Development Commission to finalize the purchase, 
which was subject to Congressional approval within thirty daya. 
This was an expenditure not anticipated In the current budget of 
the Trustees. 

Upon motion by Treasurer Larson, unanimously adopted, the Trustees 
formally approved the purchase of the deactivated Green Cove Springs 
Naval Base property from the United States surplus property agency 
and authorized payment of $621,4*00.00 from Trustees funds. 



TRUSTEES' OFFICE - Equipment. Upon motion duly adopted, the 
Trustees approved purchase of a second-hand bookcase from Capital

DADE COUNTY - File No. 714-13-253.124. The Board of County Cent- 
als a loners of Dade County by Resolution No. 7896 adopted Septem- 
ber 25, 1962, cited notice of hearing duly published and served 
on upland owners within 1000 feet and, pursuant to the hearing 
and consideration of the application, the county had granted 
dredge and fill permit to Malcolm B. Wlseheart, et al, to fill 
submerged lands purchased from the Trustees in Sections 2 and 
11, Township 56 South, Range 40 East, near Cutler. In July 1962 
the United Statea Pish and wildlife Service protested to the 
U. S. Army Corps of Engineers that the work would permanently 
halt product ion of aquatic plant and animal organisms. Florida 
Board of Conservation report dated November 16, 1962, concluded 
that large scale dredging bay ward of the bulkhead line would 
affect at least 400 acrea of productive bottom and set precedent 
for attrition of marine resources in southern Siacayne Bay. The 
area In question was shallow and application to the U. S. Engineers 
included a channel east 14,000 feet offshore to reach a five-foot 
depth. On November 5, 1962, Dade County filed a amp of Its "Six- 
year Capital Improvement Program 1962-1968" which showed no con- 
templated publio works at the Wlseheart location. On December 10, 
1962, a new planning map marked "Tentative" showed a proposed 
road through the area but information was received that the plan 
was not accepted by the County Commission. 



.135- 2-5-63 






The Director advised that other applications were pending or In 
prospect for development all along the westerly shore of the Bay 
and the prospect for industry in Dade County was in the Cutler 
area and further south. The Staff suggested consideration of a 
policy decision as to whether any sales or peralts should be 
processed for development of waterfront, navigation channels or 
causeways. 

Mr. Vlseheart asked to be allowed to challenge lose of the conser- 
vation objections when the natter was again considered by the 
Trustees. B. S. Hendricks, present on this date on behalf of 
an applicant, also would like to be heard. 

In view of the suggestion that the proposed tflseheart dredging and 
filling alght establish precedent daaaglng to marine resources and 
the argument appeared to be development on the one hand as against 
the unspoiled conservation outlook and the policy to be followed 
alght directly affect the future growth and development along a 
considerable part of the Dade County waterfront, the Board deferred 
action for two weeks and requested that the Florida Board of Con- 
servation file a memorandum with each member specifying in detail 
objections to the Wlaeheart application and to any similar appli- 
cations in the general area and Include in the memorandum any avail- 
able data relating to economic values which wight be affected. 



DADE CQtJimr _ (a) Pile Ho. 1210-13-253.12. Presented for further 
consideration was the application by John V. Campbell, riparian 
upland owner, to purchase 41.87 acres of Biscay ne Bay submerged 
land adjacent to applicant's upland in Perrlne Grant Subdivision 
In Section 2, Township 56 South, Range 40 East, within the establish- 
ed bulkhead line. Mo objections were received in response to 
advertisement authorized September 25, 1962, other than the Dade 
County Resolution No. 6138 adopted November 20, 1962, requesting 
90-day deferment of final action for county to complete planning 
study and report to the Trustees. Deferment of thirty days was 

? ranted November 27 and subsequently extended to February 5i 1963. 
b) File Ho. 1152-13-253.12. Presented for further consideration 
was application by Madam 1 Company, riparian upland owner, to pur- 
chase two parcels comprising 13.98 acres of Biscay ne Bay submerged 
land within the established bulkhead line adjacent to applicant's 
upland In Section 25, Township 55 South, Range 40 East. On Decem- 
ber 4 action was deferred on advertising the land for objections, 
{o) File No. 1222-13-253.12. Presented for further consideration 
was application by Colonial Village Apartments, Inc., riparian 
upland owner, to purchase 7.61 acres of Blacayne Bey submerged 
land within the established bulkhead line adjacent to applicant's 
upland* in Section 24, Township 55 South, Range 40 East, On Decem- 
ber 4 motion was deferred on advertising the land for objections. 

The first of the above three applications was presented for con- 
firmation or denial of sale, the other two for authority to adver- 
tise for objections only. Attention was directed to the general 
objections of the Florida Board of Conservation and the U. S. 
Pish and Wildlife Service to dredging and filling, and the dis- 
cussion on the Wl Senear t application on this date had bearing also 
on the three subject applications. 

The Trustees deferred action for two weeks for study of a memoran- 
dum requested to be filed with each member by the State Board of 
Conservation.

BAY COUNTY - The City of Panama City requested state permit for 
construction of a breakwater- Jetty in St. Andrews Bay at property 
of Standard Oil Company under permission obtained from the riparian 
owner. The structure would connect with tha shore west of the 
aouth of Measmllna Bayou, the city obtained waivers of objections 
froa owners and would be responsible for construction and mainte- 
nance since the breakwater was needed In conjunction with the 
municipal marina. The marina and proposed structure conformed 
to the established pierhead line and the Coastal Engineering 
Laboratory reported that Jetty would have negligible effect on 
stability of the shore. 

Upon motion by Hr. Larson, duly adopted, the Trustees authorized 
issuance of state permit for $100.00 processing fee. 

BBOMARD COUNTY - Staff recommended temporary easement to Florida 
Inland Navigation District with authority for assignment to the 
United States, to terminate January 31, 1965, for deposit of 
spoil froa Intraooastal Waterway at Intervals along the Atlantic 
Ocean foreshore between Ingraham Avenue in Del ray and Oakland 
Park. Tha District secured easements from riparian owners and 
the Coastal Engineering Laboratory approved the operation which 
would be a measure for stabilizing the beach and combatting 
erosion. 

Upon notion duly adopted, the Trustees approved the recommendation. 



DADE COUNTY - Resolution Ho. 33905 adopted October 3, 1962 by 
the City of Klsal requested waiver of use restriction "for munici- 
pal purposes only" contained In Trustees* Deed No. 19**8 dated 
February 2**, 19*9 to the city as to 2.10 acres or submerged land, 
for lease of the parcel to Blscayne Bay Yacht Club, a non-profit 
corporation, to allow a marina-type pier and mooring facilities 
to extend into the city -owned submerged area. The city proposed 
to lease the 2,10 acres for 5 years with renewal privilege at 
tl.OO per year subject to cancellation upon showing of need of 
the ares in the interest of the general public, Tha Trustees' 
conveyance covered Blscayne Bay bottow lands easterly of the 
bulkhead pierhead line as of 19*9, and a 100-foot pier which the 
Trustees authorized to the Yacht Club on December 18, 1956 mas 
to be removed and a new facility would extend from the club's 
upland near Dinner Key about 295 feet into the city parcel. 
State Permit CD-*21 was authorized October 16, 1962 on applica- 
tion by the Yacht Club. 

In 1956 the right of the upland owner to construct piers and 
wharves was recognized and since the waters over the area deeded 
to the city remained public and the lease provided for cancella- 
tion and removal of the facility in event of need of the sub- 
merged land for a public purpose , the Staff recommended temporary 
waiver of the municipal use clause by formal Instrument approved 
by the Attorney General under which the Municipal use clause 
would be reinstated upon termination of the city's lease to the 
Yacht Club. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees approved the recommenda- 
tion as the action of the Board. 



OSCEOLA COUNTY - Central and Southern Florida Flood Control 
District requested perpetual easements for rights of way for Canal

VOLl'SIA PfiBBB - The Clt * ° f Day tone Beach by Besolutlon No. 63-1 
adopted January 2, 1963, requested conveyance of an estimated 23 
acres of sovereignty lands In Halifax River for municipal and other 
public purposes and to lease portions to any other governmental body 
and to any nonprofit corporation organized for charitable, educa- 
tional or fraternal purposes and to other non-profit organizations. 
The land desired was bounded northwest by ohannel east of Orange 
Avenue Bridge right of way and connecting Day tone Beach Yacht Basin 
and Intracoastal Waterway, northeast by a line parallel to and 250 
feet southwest of centerline of said waterway, and southwest by a 
21-acre tract of sovereignty lend granted to the city for public 
purposes by Trustees' Deed No. 20798 dated November 19, 195*. The 
city proposed to convey or lease for tl per year a portion of the 
21-acre tract to U. S. Naval Reserve for an Armed Services Training 
Canter, subject to Trustees* approval and reversion with improve- 
ments to the city, am map submitted by the city showed plans and 
specifications for the improvements to be placed on a 4-acre area, 
part of which was upon the 21-acre tract and the remainder on the 
2 3 -acre area now sought. 

Staff had suggested that city furnish report showing current uses 
made of the seven parcels granted November 19, 1954 aggregating 
84.9 acres but city furnished only map of one parcel of 21 acres 
indicating use by Day tone Beach Yacht Basin and Day tone Beach Out- 
board Club. The proposed use of the 4-acre parcel for Armed Forces 
Training Center appeared consistent with use restriction in the 
1954 grant. City Kanager indicated that the additional 23 acres 
of submerged land, and marsh, would be filled to make it available 
and useful for public governmental and municipal purposes under 
supervision of the city and for expansion of the Yacht Club and 
boating facilities. 

The Trustees* action was that since use of the entire 84.9 acres 
heretofore granted was not disclosed, an area adjacent to the 
21-acre parcel sufficient to provide the 4 acres needed was 
granted to the city for public purposes with authority to lease 
to the United States for an Armed Services Training Center, 
consistent with the limitations contained in Deed No. 20798. 
Action on grant of the remainder of the 23 acres was deferred.

easement for dredging as recommended. 



LEE COUNTY , - On June 12, 196 1, the Trustees were apprised of Lee 
County's plan for a bond-issue highway (State Road S-865) between 
Estero Island and Bonlta Beach and development of two large public 
park areas with Gulf of Mexico and Estero Bay frontages (aggrega- 
ting 1096 acres, including right of way and state road dredging 
area). Gross discrepancies existed between the old United States 
survey and existing land areas and many private record ownerships 
of government lots, based on U. S. patents, contained no land. 
The county had negotiated with three private owners and proposed 
establishment of bulkhead lines and that private owners should 
convey all their Interests to the Trustees who in turn should 
execute dedication of required road right of way and drains, dedi- 
cate the two park areas and grant to the private owners areas to 
be agreed upon within the bulkhead lines. The plan was recommended 
June 9, 1961, by the Governor's Committee on Recreational Develop- 
ment and was tentatively approved by the Trustees. Subsequently,

the county made provision for a fourth private interest arising 
out of Trustees' Contract No. 20404 dated June 4, 1953 t i«ued to 
Southern Salea Company, Inc., covering government lota In Sections 
19 and 30, Township 1*7 South, Range 25 East, aggregating 106.63 
acres which were found to be open water except Tor a snail Mangrove 
flat. Bulkhead lines and engineering descriptions were laid out 
for the two county public park areas and for conveyances to the 
four private interests which conveyed their holdings to the Trustees. 
Except In one Instance, each private interest would receive less 
ares than was embraced in the respective private record ownership,

survey would be resolved as to the overall areas In the most practi- 
cable manner, and litigation involving ownership of two of the pri- 
vate owners would be settled with definite boundaries established. 
The instruments filed with the conveyances to the Trustees Included 
satisfaction of all encumbrances supported by title reports. No 
oil and mineral problems were involved and exchanges could be 
effected with the McDonald, Dlnkei -French and Collier Interests 
without reservations since their title conveyed Included all oil 
and minerals, and the Southern Sales -Kagu ire convey anoe would be 
made subject to the same reservation contained In the 1953 con- 
tract of sale. 

Staff recommended that (1) the two areas designated for public 
park be dedicated for public purposes including public park and 
recreation purposes under supervision of the Board of County Com- 
missioners of Lee County with provision for reversion for five 
consecutive years of non-use or In event of conversion to other 
uaest (2) that the conveyances by the private owners be accepted 
subject to return, unrecorded, In event the exchanges were not 
consummated 1 (3) that the areas designated for oonveyanoe by the 
Trustees to the respective private interests be approved for adver- 
tisement for objections only with the county bearing cost of adver- 
tisement and mailing of notices by the Trustees.

MISCELLANEOUS 

B& SY^fiP COUNTY - The U. S. Amy Corps of Engineers made applica- 
tion on behalf of the United States for the National Aeronautics 
and Space Administration prograa for 

(a) Perpetual and assignable multipurpose easement 

in and to a strip of submerged land between the west 
and east shores of the Indian River, plus an additional 
adjacent area 182 ft. by 200 ft. on the southerly side, 
located 750 ft. offshore froa the westerly shore Una, 
for roads, communication and electric facilities, water 
lines and other utilities 1 and 

(b) Five-year assignable easeaent in and to an area one- 
half mile wide north and south, northerly of and adja- 
cent to the 800-foot perpetual easement, for borrow 
and work area. 

In aaoh Instance the easeaent excepted the land marginal to and 
within 750 feet of the westerly shore which was conveyed In 1955 
by Trustees* Dead No. 21005 and Correction Deed No. 21005-A issued 
in 1959. 



-159- 



3-12-63 




The Corps of Engineers urged Immediate grant and since the two 
easements abutted an area conveyed Into private ownership by 
Trustees marginal to the westerly shore and there appeared to be 
no consent of the private owners, the Staff recommended that the 
easements be granted with certain conditions suggested by the 
Attorney General's office. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees granted to the United 
States the easements requested with provision that such grant did 
not in any way Jeopardize Tested rights of any riparian owner and 
that the United States, by acceptance of said easements, agreed 
to Initiate appropriate proceedings to Indemnify any riparian owner 
who might suffer daaage as the result of the operations and works 
to which the riparian owner had not consented In writing, bIbo, that 
the perpetual easement include provision for reversion when no longer 
needed for any Federal project or operation, and the further limita- 
tion or assignment to Federal agencies. 



BHOMARD COUNTY - Presented for further consideration was the unauthor- 
ised offshore spoil deposit in Broward County created by placement 
of spoil from channel Improvements under a Federal contract at Port 
Everglades. On October 23, 1962 , it was suggested that the island 
be used for recreation purposes and the Trustees ordered an inspec- 
tion. The City of Fort Lauderdale, the Broward County Commission 
and a number of property owners charged that the island was unsightly, 
a hazard to boat operations, depreciated their properties. Objectors 
called for all possible steps to be taken to effect removal of the 
spoil island. 

The Director cited a letter dated November 2, 1962. from Col. J. V. 
Sollohub, then District Engineer for the Jacksonville District of 
the U. S. Corps of Engineers, advising that he had Issued instruc- 
tions for such matters, In all future cases, to be cleared with 
the Trustees and that the Corps will adjust Its operation In every 
practicable manner in order to best suit the desires and interests 
of the State of Florida. 

The Trustees* Engineer reported Inspection and that by reason of 
the situation of the island In relation to private, improved 
lands, conversion to recreational uses appeared inadvisable. The 
Director stated that the present District Engineer, Col. H. B. 
Parfltt. had advised that the island wan gradually diminishing in 
size. 

After discussion, the Trustees agreed that no sale, lease or other 
commitment of the island for any use should be made and that a 
statement should be drafted to apprise Col. Parfltt and other 
Interested parties as to the position held by the Trustees. 



DADE COUNTY - The Public Works Department of Dade County applied 
for perpetual spoil easement covering an area of sovereignty land 
in the Atlantic Ocean 1000 feet square, 23 acres, approximately 
12,000 feet east- southeasterly from the easternmost tip of Fisher 
Island, and also a three-year spoil easement covering an area 
li»00 feet east and west by 2000 feet north and south, 64.28 acres, 
in Atlantic Ocean approximately 67 50 feet easterly of the southern- 
most tip of Miami Beach. County Resolution No. 6098 obligates the 
county to furnish lands, easements, rights of way and spoil areas 
to the United States for the Miami Harbor Project as authorized by 
Public law 86-6i»5. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees granted to the United States 
the perpetual spoil easement and the three-year spoil easement 
requested for the harbor project. 



f SCAWBiA COUNTY - The Trustees on February 19 authorized Marina 
srmlt to Jack *.. Herr itt, owner of approximately 580 feet of 
waterfront in Block 7 Qulnavlsta Subdivision abutting Big lagoon 
west of Pensacola, and Permit (to. CD-468 was prepared. Petition 



3-12-63 -160- 



bearing 50 names filed Itaroh 1 by Robert H. Wise and objection 
filed by Wendell B. Skaggs protested tbe applicant's plan to 
construct buildings on his upland and charged that the area was 
recreational in a residential development. Information Mai that 
the area was net zoned, the plat furnished shoved the usual dedi- 
cation of streets, roads and thoroughfares with no Mention of 
parks, the marina piers would be in line with existing piers on 
the same waterfront and, in absence of proof that the waterfront 
area was coned or legally restricted against marina and other 
commercial uses, Staff found no basis for refusal by Trustees to 
deliver the State Permit. Objectors were not present on this 
date. Aerial photo taken In 1963 disclosed no residential develop- 
ment along the waterfront but Mr. Wise's residence sits about 200 
feet Inland. 

Subsequent to Issuance to objectors of notice of hearing, Chancery 
proceeding was filed Karen S in the Circuit Court of Escambia County 
wherein H. R. Wise and 13 others ae plaintiffs against I. C. 
Qulna and wife and Mr. Kerrltt and wife seeking to declare Block 
7 (except a parcel conveyed in 1952 to D. H. Wiggins} to consti- 
tute a park and recreation area dedicated In perpetuity to owner a 
of lots in Qulnavlsta Subdivision, to set aside the deed of Quina 
to Herri tt and to enjoin Herrltt from erecting structures on the 
upland. 

Upon motion adopted without objection, the Trustees directed that 
the State Permit be delivered to Mr. Kerrltt subject to concurrence 
of the Attorney General. 



YAFT'N "QVir.'i - Without objection, the Trustees granted to the 
Florida Inlend Navigation District on behalf of the United States 
of America a perpetual easement for spoil disposal purposes over 
a parcel of submerged land Is Kobe Sound in Sections 1 and 12 of 
Township ho South, Range 42 East, Martin County. 



TRUSTEES' FUNDS - Upon motion by Comptroller Green, duly adopted, 
the Trustees released 1150,000. 00 to the Department of Public 
Safety for the beginning of their construction of the addition to 
the Nell Kirkman Building at Tallahassee. Colonel Klrkman estimated 
that the total cost of the addition would not exceed 1350,000 and 
he did not think it would be necessary for any further funds to 
be advanced by the Trustees as the balance could be paid from the 
Department's trust fund. The money advanced would be repaid by 
the Department of Public Safety after their construction coats of 
the addition had been paid. 



Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees adjourned.

South, Range 35 East, within the established bulkhead line. 



BHEVABD COUNTY - Upon motion adopted without objection, the Trustees 
authorized issuance of permit to G and H Builders, Inc., for the 
removal and use of 80,000 cubic yards of fill material from Newfound

DUVAL COUNTY - On January 22, 1963, the Trustees denied application 
of P. A. Morgan for permit for 290- foot extension of a 45- foot com- 
mercial pier In front of applicant's Lot 5, Block 200, Lakeside 
Park on the Ortega River. One adjacent waterfront owner consented 
but C. J. Herndon protested that the dock would depreciate his resi- 
dence on his adjacent Lot 6. Applicant subsequently modified his 
plan by reducing the length 50 feet (total length to be 285 feet) 
and furnished proof that the area had been zoned industrial for 
approximately 17 years, and long before acquisition of the adjacent 
lot by the objector. 



3-19-63 -164- 



Attention was called to letter of Congressman Charles E, Bennett 
requesting the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers to consider carefully 
before granting Federal permit for the extension , slid letter of 
V. 0. Smith regarding the beauty of the Heradon and another 
residence although situated In an area zoned Industrial. 

Since the applicant's present and contemplated operation appeared 
consistent with zoning of the area which already had three mar ma- 
ty pe businesses with piers, and the proposed extension of appli- 
cant's pier was clearly riparian to hie upland, Staff recommended 
that the permit be granted. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, adopted without objection, the Trustees 
overruled the objection and approved issuance of modified permit 
subject to applicant securing permit from the 0. S. Corps of

application To the 0. S. Corps of Engineers for Federal penult to 
construct « covered boat shed in Wilbur Bar. Halifax Hlver, os 
submerged land purchased from the Trustees adjacent to his upland 
at Wilbur-by-the-Sea (Half-Dollar Island). The Installation Mas 
a commercial pier for which processing fee for State Permit Mas 
#100, however Hr. Williams felt that the fee and usual require- 
ment of plana drawn by a Registered Engineer should not be imposed 
since he owned the submerged land under the public Maters. 

The construction plan appeared typical and adequate for the area, 
which Mas sway from the main open expanse of river. The applicant' i 
objection to the usual requirements raised a policy question and 
Staff recommended that in Instances Mhere the structures Mere on 
submerged lands privately owned and* plans such that the structure 
should not be hazardous, a handling charge of tlQ.OO might be fixed 
and employment of a registered engineer waived.

constructed on privately owned submerged land wss considered by 
the Stsff to be safe and not hazardous, the employment of a Regis- 
tered Engineer to design the structure and prepare plans could be 
waived and State Permit issued for $10.00 handling charge.

owner, to purchase a parcel of submerged land In Lemon Bay In 
Sections 21 and 28, Township 41 South, Range 20 East, 18.85 acres 
within the established bulkhead line. The Staff Appraiser reviewed 
and approved the 1300 per acre value reported by an appraisal made 
for the Trustees In December. The land was advertised for objections 
only In the Punta Gorda Herald and proof of publication was filed. 

Objections filed by Joseph H. King, Budolph Bitter and the Pine 
Cove Association, directed against sale and filling of the northerly 
portion of the subject parcel, approximately 2.3 acres, cited that 
filling at that end would close an existing channel (not shown on 
maps filed with Trustees) and damage conservation values. The 
application parcel was designated as an alternate spoil area for 
the mtracoestal waterway construction and withholding the small 
portion would not hamper disposition of such spoil. 

Upon motion by Attorney General Ervin, duly adopted, the Trustees 
confirmed sale of the advertised land with the exception of the 
parcel at the northerly end, approximately 2.3 acres, to which 
objections were filed.

Florida Times Union, proof of publication was filed with the 
Trustees and no protest received. 

Staff Appraiser reported on the land value, previously fixed at 
tlOO per acre. It was suggested that the Trustees assess a minimum 
value in view of the fact that most recent sales in the tone were 
at $250 per acre and there were prospects for available spoil 
material and possibility of a future highway project. William C. 
Bostwlok requested reduction to (150 per acre in view of develop- 
ment difficulties in the zone and no immediate plan for Improvement. 
Governor Bryant stated that the state might hold the arem until 
conditions for development were more favorable. 

Upon motion by Comptroller Green, seconded by Commissioner Conner, 
the Trustees agreed to confirm sale to the applicant at $250.00 per 
acre.

On August 18, 1959 the Trustees considered the original Wolfe and 
Ssvsge (now Dlclscco) applications for submerged Blecayne Bay land 
between Lots 1 and 2 of Coral Park and the established bulkhead 
line. The Board authorized advert Ismment for objections only 
based on offer of the appraised price for the land, $3 , 125. 00 per 
acre. Action was deferred on the sale date, October 13, 1959, and 
again on December 15. 1959 by reason of objection of the City of 
Miami and the uncertain status of Corsl Drive, an access route 
dedicsted in 1913 to use of purchasers of lots is Coral Park. Staff 
recommended reservation from the sale to provide extension of Coral 
Drive to the bulkhead line. On February 25, I960 the city objection 
wsa withdrawn. Since other objections were filed, the Trustees on 
April 5, I960 deferred action for ground inspection which verified 
that Coral Drive, a 34- foot passage between applicants' two upland 
lots, waa an extension of Northeast 20th Street, was paved, had a 
cul-de-sac at the shore line and wsa used by the public. Eminent 
does In proceedings Instituted by the city against Wolfe and Savage 
resulted In Judgment on May 1, 1962 dismissing the oaae at plaintiff* a 
cost and the Appeal Court confirmed the d ism la sal. 

Pursuant to proposal by the city for reservation of s 34-foot atrip 
with sufficient turn-around, the Staff recommended confirmation of 
the two sales subject to reservation of 1? feet from each with a 
cul-de-sac with frontage of 65 feet at the bulkhead line, applicants 
to be required to amend maps and legal description and to furnish 
title certificate. No change In price was suggested since It 
appeared that sale would have been confirmed more than two years 
sgo had not the city made object lona which subsequently were ruled 
out by the Court. 

L. J. Cushman, representing the applicants, asked for approval of 
the sales. He said that filling would Improve the area where debris

of approximately 16 acres in Sarasota Bay In Section 19, Township 
36 South, Range lS East, for development of a city marina and 
recreation area. The city's preliminary estimates and plan involving 
extensive filling included a portion of right of way on sovereign^ 
land granted by Trustees fl>r State Road 45 [U.S. 41) and anticipated 
ultimate removal of the exiating City Hall and use of that area as 
park with pedestrian overpasses to the new project. The City 
claimed riparian ownership of fee simple title underlying the road 
easement at the ahore line, that the state Road Department had 
agreed to release that portion of right of wsy, and that the City 
was prepared to proceed with bond validation proceedings upon 
authorization of the grant by the Trustees. 

Douglas K. Wsrner, Mr. Ware, Charles Robinson, D. L. Olvens, H. 
Hodson, Mrs. Edna Davis, Bird Key Association, Ksrbor Acres 
Association and others protested the city's plan based on financial 
and aesthetic reasons (traffic congestion, loss of view), that the 
City Commission was divided on the issue, that there waa not 
general public approval and the project should be submitted to 
a public referendum. 

Mayor Keraehel C. Kayo and City Manager Kenneth Thompson discussed 
the city's plan as a means of revitalizing the economy and taking 
advantage of the waterway and the material dredged from the new 
pass . Trustees ' Engineer Kidd recommended spprovsl and Staff 
recommended advertisement for objections with eoata reimbursed 
by the city. 



-183- 4-23-63 



Motion was made by Mr. Larson, seconded and adopted, with Attorney 
General Ervln voting "No", that the application of the City of 
Sarasota for municipal park purposes only be approved subject to 
procurement of the release from the State Road Department, and 
subject to advertisement for objections. 



MISCELLANEOUS 



CITRUS COUNTY - Senator James E. Connor, Representative Allison R. 
Strickland, commissioner Hohert R. Oils trap and County Engineer 
were present on behalf of request of the Board of County Commis- 
sioners of Citrus County (Resolution adopted April 16, 1963 filed 
with Trustees) for loan of $35,000 for construction of canal from 
Floral City Lake to Davis Lake near Inverness, U.ll miles, of which 
3. l^t miles required construction with total cost less bridges 
estimated b" consulting engineers at $33,000. Southwest Florida 
Water Management District Resolution adopted April 10, 1963 
recited that the plan was approved by Wlthlacoochee River Basin 
Board on April 5, 1963 but modifications were suggested. South- 
west District approved the canal as the first unit of a county- 
sponsored project to serve water supply requirements of the 
entire Tsala-Apopka Lake Chain and approved the plan subject to 
modification to Include an emergency control structure and to 
eliminate lowering of a structure in the Orange state Canal and 
subject to appro /al of final plans and specifications. Senator 
Connor said the project was vital to insure water level and control 
and the county would repay the loan $5000 per year. 

The Director stated for the record that the $35,000 loan was not 
Included In the Trustees' budget. 

Upon motion by Commies ioner Conner, duly adopted, the Trustees 
approved loan of $35,000 to Citrus County for the purpose 
requested, with interest of three per cent and repayment by 
the County of $5000 per year, subject to the county delegation 
clearing with the Attorney General's office as to any Legislation 
or legal authority required. 



DADE COUNTY - Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorized 
State permit to S. Z., Inc., for $100.00 processing fee for 
installation of docking facilities to serve tenants, owners and 
guests of "Biscavne-21" on Biacayne Bay at Tracts 1 and 2, Ursin 
Tract In the City of Miami, conditioned upon procurement of the 
necessary city and federal permits . 



DADE COUNTY - Mr. Lewis Adams, member of the Is land la City Council, 
a pea king on behalf of the city, requested grant of causeway right 
of way over state sovereignty lands for Islandia's alignment plan 
recommended by Dade County manager and County planning section 
which the City of Islandla would accept (even though it differed 
from the city plan) in order to get immediate action ftr financial 
reasons and to make early application for federal matching funds. 
Mr. Adams said that the city, as requested by the Board, had 
many conferences with Metro Dade and Seadade ship channel 
interests without reaching three -party accord, but now there 
was accord between Islandla and the county manager and planning 
section on causeway alignment . He discussed the position of ship 
channel interests and said that Islandla had refrained from 
expressing objections, that the city could not finance bridge over 
the Seadade Ship Channel, and that when Islandia's alignment was 
granted then the problem would be reduced to questions to be 
settled between the county and Seadade. 

Mr. Adams said that construction of the causeway would creste many 
Jobs and make a second highway to the Florida Keys, that Dade 
County was losing a large amount of taxes for every day of delay 
in connecting the Islands, that the Trustees had given every con- 
sideration to the county and that now action should be taken to 



h -23-63 -l8t- 



grant the right of way which the Trustees had authority to do 
within the law and in the public interest. It was reported that 
the State Road Department had not been asked to invest igat the 
proposed route of the causeway through the keys, and that a 
private group was also Interested In the project. 

The Governor stated that the Board could not take action on this 
date but that Mr. Adana should pursue the matter with the Trustees ' 
Staff for a hearing date to be set and proper parties notified. 

It was so ordered . 



PINELLAS COUNTY - Upon motion by Mr. Larson, duly adopted, the 
Trustees authorized State Permit to Leon W. Noel and George t. Noel 
for three covered boat slips for privately owned boats at Block 19 
Mitchell Beach Subdivision, Madeira Beach on Boca Ciega Bay, for 
which Pinellas County Navigation and Control Authority Permit No. 
2475, consent of adjacent owners and $100.00 processing fee were 
filed with the Trustees . 



PUTNAM COUNTY - (a) 3AKSP Permits (63-169) Curtis A. Putnal 
tendered $10 processing fee for State Permit after-the-fact for 
pier and boat ahed inSt. Johns River at hla lot at Bridgeport; 
also (b) SAKSP PermitB (63-170) Alva Brannon applied for State 
Permit to construct pier in St. Johns River at his lot southerly 
of and adjacent to the Putnal lot. 

Attention was called to the map furnished by the U. S. Engineers 
which showed the existing dock of C. A. Dahlke covered by State 
Permit with a portion Indicated for removal. Mr. Dahlke advised 
that he did not plan to remove any of his pier but to relocate 
his boat shelter to the westerly side of his pier. He and C. T. 
Tomlinson protested that the proposed pier Mould shut them off 
from the river snd upon examination of the drawing it appeared 
that the only practical solution was to reduce the length of the 
existing Putnal Pier (built without permit) and proposed Brannon 
pier, snd that effort should be made to secure similar reduction 
In the Dahlke pier. The Stsff would recommenc federal permit 
for dredging to deepen channels into the cove ao that the piers 
would reach navigable depth. 

The Trustees declined to authorize State Permits for the Brannon 
or Putnal docks pending reduction In length of both docks to 
protect Ingress and egress for other riparian owners in the cove. 



MARION COUNTY - Mr. Sam Love requested action by the Trustees to 
require proper maintenance of the causeway bridge in Lake Weir 
at Island No. 1 cslled Tlmucuan Island (Bird Island). The Bosrd 
In 1959 required formal agreement and construction of the bridge 
In connection with filling inLake Weir by Pred D. H. MacKenzie, 
Mr. Love stated that clearance for boats passing between the two 
bodies had never been maintained and he felt that some group 
should fill the obligation to force the Issue on behalf of the 
many boat owners and rishermen needing the water pssssge under 
the causeway bridge . 

The Trustees directed Engineer William R. Kldd to investigate the 
complaint and make recommendation to the Board at a later meeting. 



POLICY - Attention was called to a ten -page "Oulde to the 
Conservation of Shorelines, Submerged Bottoms and Saltwsters with 
Special Reference to Bulkhead Lines, Dredging and Pilling" dated 
March 1963 issued by Florida Board of Conservation which recommended 
that bulkhead lines be set no further offshore thsn the mean low 
tide line, that no dredging be allowed beyond bulkhead lines except 
for public projects or navigation with those controlled as to depth 
and area and that bulkhead lines follow natural curves of shore, 
avoiding long straight lines. The publication stated that "tax 



-I85- tt -23-63 



benefits to be derived from real estate developments is Illusory" 
and that "Actually, there ia little or no net gain In taxes 
generally", and advocated the preservation of marshes, mangrove 
islands in developed bayshores, and mangrove swamps. 

The Staff pointed out that the bulkhead law was administered, first 
of all, at the local level requiring publication of notice and 
public hearing before bulkhead lines were fixed by duly elected 
local officials, the lines representing locations deemed by the 
local governing bodies to be In the public interest. 

The Board expressed interest in reading the booklet to see what 
guidance there might be for future bulkhead line consideration. 
The theory and general recommendations appeared good except in 
instances where It was not in the public interest. 



LE0I3LATI0H FEMpIHO - The Director called attention to the follow* 
lng bills sffectlng the Trustees of the Internal Improvement Fund: 

1. Senate Bill 3^3 : Creates Division of Beaches and Shores in 
Board of Conservation to admlniater and enforce all provisions 
of law relating to preservation and restoration of beaches 
and shores, including erosion and storm damage; provides for 
employment of a Director and other personnel . 

2. House Bill 853: Requires Trustees to provide a aeparate Land 
Management Division to select, contract Tor, appraise, survey, 
condemn, negotiate for purchase, development and use of all 
land, water areas and related resources generally classified 
as outdoor areas, Including areas for outdoor recreation, 
wildlife management and control, conservation areas, forestry 
areas, water storage areas, navigation channels, rights of way 
for access roads; provides for Trustees to issue revenue bonds; 
creation of a land acquialtion trust fund to receive all 
revenues from sales, leases and operations. The bill purports 
to repeal all laws in conflict (constitutional and statutory 
share of State School Fund, portions of authority of Central 
and Southern Florida Flood Control District, posalbly State 
Road Department and other agencies)] could force the State 
Board of Education to sell all of its lands. 

3. Senate Bill 302: Assigns management, supervision and use of 
land acquired for outdoor recreation, conservation and natural 
resources to Board of Conaervation with authority to allocate 
and lease; requires Trustees to acquire and hold lands requested 
by Board of Conaervation; creates land acquialtion trust fund 

to be held snd administered by Trustees . 

U, House Bill 852. Provides authority (permissive) for net pro- 
ceeds of sale, lease or other disposition of atste lands 
administered by Trustees to be paid into land acquialtion 
trust fund (H.B. 853) except proceeds payable to State School 
Fund and except Murphy Act (General Revenue) fund. 

5. House Bill 375: An act relating to land title; need and exact 
intent is vague; apparently all reserved oil snd minerals, 
rights of way and other Interests not specifically cited in 
recent conveyances and not actually exerciaed or used by the 
holder would be extinguished unless declaration of the specific 
right or interest is filed with Clerk Circuit Court of the 
County with complete description, reference to same in public 
records, names snd addresses of record owners, plus feea , The 
bill would appear to provide easy mesne for extinguishment of 
the State 1 a reserved canal rights, oil, minerals, easements, etc. 

6. Senate Bill 358 (H.B. 488) 1 Provides Trustees and Board of 
Education shall not sell or lease reserved oil and minerals 
to other than surface owner without Joinder of surface owner 
or in concurrence with sale or lease by surface owner, 

7. House Bill 671 : An Act to create a State Bureau of Land 
Surveys; would appropriate to itself the Field Note Division, 



4-23-63 -186- 



" 



Its files, plats, field notes, Spanish Archives, duplicating 
and all other equipment and personnel and assign same to 
a State Land Surveyor. Need for such Bureau la not clear aa 
the Field Note Division has a long record of active, satis- 
factory service to the surveying and engineering profession 
of the State and la fully capable to continue under the 
current organization of personnel in coordination with 
functions of the Land Office and Truetees .

On April 9, 1963 the Trustees deferred action for investigation by 
Engineer Kldd of the two above application* for aubmerged Blacayne 
Bay land between Lota 1 and 2 of Coral Park and the established

bulkhead line. Staff recommended confirmation of the sales subject 
to reservation of 17 feet from each to provide 34 -foot extension of 
Coral Drive together with adequate cul-de-sac with frontage of 
65 feet at the bulkhead line. 

The application had been considered at a number of previous hear- 
ings . The Trustees approved the plan recommended for extension 
of Coral Drive with turn-around at the bulkhead line. The Attorney 
General waa reported to have suggested that deeds be held for 
thirtv days . He had also suggested to the atarr that the approval 
of the sale be withheld until it could be determined what plan, If 
any, the city had for uae of the submerged area in the pocket lying 
between the bulkhead line and the street located in the southerly 
portion. Treasurer Larson said that after many years delay, In 
and out of court, he felt that the applicants were entitled to 
deeds . Engineer Kldd agreed that there appeared no basis for further 
delay. 

L. J. Cushman and E. F. P. Brigham, attorneys for the respective 
applicants, urged confirmation of sales for the applications 
pending since 1956, read from the Court's dismissal of the City 
of Miami 'a suit and said the city could secure land, If required 
for public purposes, by condemnation . 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, seconded by Mr. Green and adopted, 
the Truateea overruled previously filed objections and confirmed 
sale of the two Dade County parcela on the basis of the appraised 
price offered, $3125.00 per acre, applicants to furnish amended 
map, legal description and title certificate. 



DADE COUNTY - Pile No. 1306-13-253.12. Islandia Properties 
Company, abutting upland owner, represented by Hofmann, Brandt 
and Doyle, offered the appraised price of $380.00 per acre for 
a parcel of submerged land in the Atlantic Ocean in Section 18, 
Township 57 South, Range 42 Eaat, 3.0 acrea at Elliott Key, 
Dade Covin ty. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorized sdvertisement 
for objections only. 



PALM BEACH COUNTY - Five applications were submitted by Brockway, 
Wetter and Brockway for abutting upland owners to purchase parcels 
of sovereignty land in Boca Rstones Lagoon in Section 16, Township 
47 South, Range 43 East, Palm Beach County. The Trustees' attention 
wag called to the map showing the meander lines of the government 
survey, that since the hiatus area was no longer submerged no 
bulkhead line was required, that in the past some filling and 
cuta had been made by county moaquito control works, that some 
land titlea in the paat were approved overlooking the hiatus . 
Staff Appraiser Weigel concurred in the prices shown below. 

Without objection, the Trustees authorized advertiaainent of the 
following appl lcations : 

Pile No. 1192-50-253.12. Vincent Paliaano, et al,

MONROE COUNT* - J. Bruce Vlnlng, owner of Government Lot 4 in 
Section 27 snd holder of contract to purchase Government Lot 3 
In Section 27, all In Township 62 South, Range 36 East, total 71-97 
acres, proposed to exchange 70.43 acres of said lands under open 
waters of Ta«rnler Community Harbor for 70.4 acres of sovereignty 
mangrove in Sections 27 and 28, Township 62 South, Range 38 Ea^t. 
Mr. Vlnlng proposed exchange based on approximate acreage equivalent 
rather than appraised value (no appraisal was made). 

The submerged government lots owned by Mr. Vlnlng constituted only 
a fraction of the harbor area in record private ownership and Staff 
was unable to affirm whether said lota were formerly land eroded 
or torn away by storms or whether the official 0. S. Survey of 1873 
was grossly erroneous. No elevations or mean high water lines were 
Bhown on the map but a large percentage or the 70." acres was between 
Government Lot 5 of Section 28-62-38 and open waters of Florida Bay. 
Applicant did not offer to include a triangular 0.57 acre parcel 
in southeast comer of Gov. Lot 3 nor a triangular parcel of 0.97 
acre in southwest corner of Oov. Lot 4, both of which were landward 
of proposed offshore limits for sale, reservation of which parcels 
from the exchange might result in conflict with riparian rights of 
the upland ownera . While exchange to extinguish private ownership 
under public, open waters might be desirable, Staff questioned 
advisability of exchanging for leas than the entire Oov. Lots 3 
and I and conveyance of n^ngrove areas between Gov. Lot 5 of 
Section 28 without written assent of the several aTfected upland 
owners . 

Need for further information being evident, the Trustees took no 
action. 



MARTIN COUNTY - Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees granted to 
Florida Inland Navigation District on behalf of the United States 
s temporary easement to expire June 30, 1964 for borrow ares 
purposes over the bottoms of Pecks Lake in Jupiter Sound, Gomez 
Grsnt, the fill from the temporary easement to be used to repair 
a break-through in the land between Pecks Lake and the Atlantic 
Ocean . 



INDIAN RIVER COUNTY - Upon motion adopted without objection, the 
Trustees authorized isauance of refund of $50.00 to William Van 
Buach, applicant In Trustees' Pile No. 927-31-253.12, for reason 
of submission of duplicate application fee. 



PALM BEACH COUNTY - File No, 1157-50-253.124. Upon motion adopted 
without objection, the Truatees approved fill permit issued by 
the Town of Lantana to A. W. Steffey to fill the submerged lend 
previously purchased comprising 0.19 acre lr-ing in Lake Worth 
in Section 3, Township 45 South, Range 43 East, Pslm Beach Count: . 



PALM BEACH COUNTY - File No. 1186-50-253.124. Upon motion adopted 
without oVJectlon, the Trustees approved fill permit issued by the 
Town of Lantana to Jack C. Lee to fill the submerged land previously 
purchaeed comprising 0.13 acre lylr.g in Lake Worth in Section 3, 
Township 45 South, Range 43 East, Palm Beach County. 



FOLK COUNTY - Upon motion adopted without objection, the Trustees 
granted permit without charge to Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish 
Commission to use 1500 cubic yards of fill material from Lake 
Parker to improve the Commission's property In Section 6, Township 
29 South, Range 27 East, Polk County, 



PINELLAS COUNTY - Pinellas County Attorney, for the Board of 
County Coimnlss loners, proposed that piers for motels snd hotels for 
use by guests be classified as private piers the same as piers for 



-189- 4-29-63 



uae by an owner, his family and friende, for which no charge ia 
made Under the regulatory procedures defined in Minutes af Decem- 
ber 8, 1959 and modified May 3, 1960, filed with the Secretary of 
State as regulations pursuant to Section 120 Florida Statutes, 
three categories of docks were licensed by State Permit: 

A. Private, simple dock, pier or wharf consisting of deck 
with or without rails (without roofed area of shed or 
boathouse), supported by piling or open trestle, for 
private use by owner-family and family friends. Granted 
without processing fee. 

B. Private, simple dock with roofed area, shed or boathouse. 
Por use by owner-family and family friends. Processing 
fee $10. 

C. Public, club and commercial docks, piers and wharves 
with or without boat slips, marinas, including wharf, 
dock and pier facilities of hotel, motel or apartment 
house. Processing fee $100. Por this group, plana by 
registered engineer in the interest of public safety , 
and consent of adjacent owners were required. 

Operation of a motel or hotel was a commercial enterprise and piers, 
whether or not the paying guests paid extra for use, were a con- 
version of public water area to the benefit or the commercial 
enterprise . Staff recommended that such piers remain in the same 
general category as commercial, indue trial and club piers in 
accordance with existing regulations which required applicants to 
furnish adjacent ownerships and consents. In Pinellas County the 
Water and Navigation Control Authority processed applications and 
furnished the Trustees copy of county permit and transcript of Its 
minutes relating to the matter. Many were processed without showing 
of adjacent ownerships or consents and without information aa to 
local zoning; frequently the Staff must request the permittee to 
furnlah auch. 

The Trustees directed that the existing regulations be continued 
with no change. 



TRUSTEES ' PUMPS - Florida Board of Parks and Historic Memorials 
requested thst further repayment on the $2*(0,6Q0 loan made by the 
Trustees on September 26, 1961 without interest, be deferred until 
June at which time the Park Board agreed to repay the entire balance. 
On November 28, 1961 the Trustees agreed to deferment of repayment 
to allow use for construction of facilities for the Pennecamp Coral 
Reef State Park, subject to provision whereundsr unpaid balance at 
the end of the blennlum would be repaid by transfer from the General 
Fund or, if that waa not sufficient, the same be carried over into 
the next biennium. The sum of $120,600 remained unpaid and 
Assistant Park Board Director Roy M. Brooks advised that release 
of $150,000 fromPark Service Trust Funds for capital outlay for the 
Coral Reef Park was authorized by the Budget Commission February 
6, 1962 for release in June. 

Upon notion duly adopted, the Trustees granted the request for 
deferment of losn repayment by the Florida Board of Parka and 
Historic Memorials until June 1963. 



TRUSTEES ' FUNDS - U. S. Geological Survey, Topographic Mapping. 
oncer Chapter 57-775 the Trustees were directed to make available 
$10,000 per year and the State Road Department $30,000 per year to 
the United States to accelerate the topographic mapping program on 
a cooperative basis whereunder the u. S. bears hslf of the cost. 
Other etste agencies and counties might contribute on the same 
basis. Memorandum of Chairman of the Road Department advised 
that less than *»0* of the state was adequately mapped as to 
topograph?/, that bo£ had never been mapped in that manner and 20 % 
of the mapped areas were now obsolete; that the development and 



4-29-63 -190- 



growth of Florida was so great that the mapping program was unable 
to keep pace; that approval had been obtained for legislation to 
Increase the Road Department's contribution froei $30,000 to $50,000 
per -ear and that approval was urged for Increase of Trustees ' 
contribution from $10,000 to $20,000 per yeer. The coat per 
quadrangle map was approximately $12,330 and the two Increases 
would allow for nearly 11 new are a a of 60 square ml lea each to be 
mapped or revised annually. 

Upon motion adopted without objection, the Trustees approved 
Increase of contribution to $20,000 per year for topographic mapping 
of Florida under the cooperative program with the United States .

acre in Naples Bay, pending modification to exclude a 50- foot parcel

plated improvement but found that the owners of seven lots in the 
vicinity protested the proposed extension, that owners of Lot 13 
Block 4 had the most valid objections based on reduction of view 
and bringing of a semi-commercial enterprise nearer to their 
residence, and that a favorable recomnendation could not be given. 
On February 28 the applicant was mailed copy of Mr. Kidd's report 
suggesting a reasonable extension and that applicants might contact 
the riparian owners and work out an acceptable arrangement. Appli-

cant requested rehearing before the Trustees but filed no report to 
indicate that efforts were made to work out acceptable plans. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees sustained the Staff position 
that applicants' report should be filed before rehearing vas sche- 
duled. 



BAY COUNTY - Bulkhead Line. Presented for formal approval were 
bulkhead lines fixed April 9, 1963 by the City of Panama City Ordi- 
nance No. 705 for St. Andrews Bay between Wainwright Shipyard (Banna 
Avenue) and a point northwest of intersection of 12th Street and 
Bayviev Avenue (West 740 feet from a point North 0*15' East from 
Southeast corner of SEk of NW% of Section 1, Township 4 South, 
Range 15 West). The lines were located approximately 250 feet off- 
shore throughout and no objections were presented at the public 
hearing. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees formally approved the bulk- 
head lines fixed April 9, 1963 by the City of Panama City. 



ST. LUC It: COUNTY - Bulkhead Line. Staff recommended Istentl back 
to St. Lucie County of the bulkhead line fixed February 19, 1963 
by the Board of County Commissioners encompassing the existing 
privately owned Nettles Island in the Indian River, and adjacent 
100-foot strip which would allow enlargement of the island from 
49.81 acres to 125.53 acres. Bv Ik head line for the mainland north 
of the island was established and would leave 650 feat of open 
water, but no bulkhead line was established for the rest of the 
mainland. The westerly unit of the bulkhead line was about 2100 
feet east from center of Intracoastal Waterway channel and would 
project further into the river than the mainland bulkhead line 
immediately north of the island. No objections were registered 
at the county hearing. 

Staff suggested amendment to eliminate the lines along the 100- 
foot connecting strip since access could be provided by easement. 
No bulkhead lines having been established for mainland east of the 
island, the bulkhead lines if provided for the access strip should 
terminate offshore to avoid prejudice of rights of other owners in 
the zone. The area west of the island was a 50-acre tract sold to 
the owner of the island in July 1956, and projected about 600 feet 
further west than the bulkhead line next north of the island. 
Staff suggested that an exchange might be worked out of submerged 
land east of the island for a portion of the 50-acre tract west of 
the island. 

Upon motion by Attorney General Ervin, duly adopted, the Trustees 
directed that the bulkhead line be referred back to St. Lucie 
County with suggestion that the county consider amendment to elimi- 
nate the 100- foot connecting strip and any further reduction con- 
sidered desirable, and that the Staff work out land exchange with 
the island owner if possible. 



DADE COUNTY - City of Hiami requested rehearing on its request for 
conveyance of SW'Si of SW^ of SW*i of Section 10, Township 54 South, 
Range 42 Bast which was former upland of Virginia Key in record 
ownership of V-K Properties, Inc., and pending before the Trustees 
for disclaimer of the portion within the established bulkhead line. 
In substance, the Trustees were requested to adjudicate the 
question as to whether the private record title had been extinguished. 



-193- 5-7-63 



On September 11, 1962 the matter was referred to the Attorney 
General. Mr. Ervin recommended that the matter be reheard by the 
Board and he would be willing to issue deed to the city and hold 
thirty days to afford V-K Properties, Inc., opportunity to take 
legal action, 

The Trustees directed that rehearing be scheduled at a future date 
after the current Legislative Session. 



INDIAN RIVER COUNTY - File Ho. 1317-31-253. 12(1) . Charles E. Smith, 
on behalf of Kennett B. Olson and wife, applied for disclaimer of 
16.05 acres, more or less, within the established bulkhead line, 
outside of the U. S. meander of Sections 5 and 8, Township 33 South, 
Range 40 East, in the Indian River at Vero Beach, Indian River 
County. The area was filled in connection with mosquito control 
operations in 1956 as evidenced by affidavits of the Director of 
the County Mosquito Control District and the Engineer who supervised 
the work, and a large canal was cut by applicants. Photographs taken 
in 1951, 1955 and 1963 evidenced the change from marginal mangrove, 
all or largely tidal, to filled land with considerable vegetation. 
Accurate estimate as to whether more than 50% was normally below 
water prior to the filling could not be determined but if so, the 
area would be subject to sale under provisions of Section 253.12(1) 
to the riparian owners, without advertisements, as sovereignty land 
filled subsequent to May 29, 1951 and prior to June 11, 1957. If 
more than 50% was exposed land at mean high tide prior to filling, 
the parcel might have qualified for survey by the United States as 
erroneously omitted land and subject to selection by the state as 
swamp and overflow land, or the United State* might have construed 
the title to have passed in the patent of the adjacent surveyed 
land. 

The matter was reviewed with the office of the Attorney General. 
Staff recommended conveyance under the cited statute at $100.00 
pair acre, comparable sales of submerged lands in the general zone 
including the following: 

St. Lucie County, July 1956, 50 acres at $50.00 per 

acre (Dyer); 

Martin County, Sept. 1956, 4 parcels aggregating 14.48 

acres between upland and private islands at Bewail' s 

Point at 5100.00 per acre (Wareheira; tilers; Cook); 

Brevard County, 1957, 215 acres at $100.00 per acre 

near Canaveral (Port Realty Company)) 

Indian River County, 1957, 34 acres at $120,00 per 

acre at Vero Beach (Lowenstein) . 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees approved conveyance under 
provisions of Section 253.12(1) at $100.00 per acre. 



IMDIAH RIVER COUNTY - In connection with construction of State 
Road A-l-A in Indian River County, the State Road Department made 
application for the following: 

1. Dedication of 100 foot right of way across sub- 
merged lands in the Indian River in Sections 2B 
and 33, Township 30 South, Range 39 East; 

2. Temporary easement to expire April 20, 1967, for 
dredging area in Sections 2B, 29 and 33, Township 
30 South, Range 39 East, in the Indian River.

Upon notion duly adopted, the Trustees approved issuance of dedi- 
cation and easement requested by the State Road Department. 



MONROE COUNTY - Oes Roche r Sand Company, Inc. , holder of Sand Lease 
No, 1172 which expired April 9, 1963, requested one year extension 
and furnished surety bond of 51000,00 to cover the additional time. 
Lease provided for royalty of 15^ per cubic yard with $25.00 monthly 
minimum, and account was in good standing with laat audit made in 
September 1962. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees approved one year extension 
of the lease on the sane terms and conditions. 



PALM BEACH COUNTY - The Trustees discussed the agricultural lease 
which was referred on April 23 to a committee composed of Commissioner 
Conner, Attorney General Ervin and Superintendent Bailey, State 
Board of Education lands also being involved. Mr. Conner said a 
meeting was held, that sale was favored rather than a long- tern 
lease, and that purchase of fee had been made which the committee 
should consider. Competitive sale was suggested with requirement 
of reasonable assurances for execution of contract. 

The Trustees deferred action pending further report from the co mm i ttee. 



PINELLAS COUNTY - Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees approved 
issuance jof State Permit to Kool's Marina, Inc., for commercial 
catwalk docks and boat ramps in Boca Ciega Bay at applicant's 
property in Government Lot 2 of Section 9, Township 31 South, 
Range IS East, abutting State Road 233 at Madeira Beach, for Which 
city and county permit No. 2479 was issued April 29, 1963 and $100.00 
processing fee was tendered. 



DESOTO COUNTY - Janes M. Wallace, holder of purchase Contract No. 
21566 dated May 30, 1957 covering Lot 15, Section 27, Township 39 
South, Range 23 East, requested refund of all monies paid by him 
under the contract by reason of failure of the state's title as 
result of litigation involving the Trustees and Harry Toff el. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorized total refund of 
$1,669.61, being all interest and principal under Contract No. 21566, 
amounting to $1,664.97, and including $3.64 advertising costs in 
connection with sale of the land to Mr. Wallace. 



TRUSTEE ' S FUNDS -On this date a Resolution was adopted by the Board 
of Conservation relative to channel improvement in the Apalachicola 
River. Governoi Bryant directed that the minutes show that upon 
motion of Mr. Green, seconded by Mr. Conner, acting for the Trustees 
of the Internal Improvement Fund, the Trustees be directed to reim- 
burse the United States the cost of acquiring a perpetual easement 
on and over Tract No. 413-E in fractional Section 25, Township 2 
North, Range 6 Vest, Calhoun County, containing 5.0 acres, more or 
less. Director Randolph Bodges of the Board of Conservation pre- 
sented the natter for confirmation in the Trustees' meeting. For 
the record it was noted that the Trustees' budget did not include 
the contribution. 

Upon motion by Attorney General Ervin, duly adopted, the Board 
directed that up to $2000.00 be made available from Trustees' funds 
for the purpose requested. 



-195- 5-7-63 



TRUSTEES' FUNDS - Upon motion duly adopted , Controller Green was

in Clay County (see minutes January 29. 1963). This was an item 
not shown in the budget of the Trustees. 



APPRAISALS - William R. Weigel, Trustees' Staff Appraiser, reviewed 
his procedure and the criteria which establish submerged land values 
for sale by the Trustees. He outlined a "Summary of Important Con- 
clusions in the Appraisal of Sovereignty Lands" which included the 
following! 

Two Approaches to Value : 

1. Market Data or Comparative Process, as the basic method 
of approach to value. 

2. Coat Approach of Producing Land, or Projected 

Development- Land Residual technique. 

Questions to be considered during the appraiser's inspection 
of submerged land and the riparian upland tract t 

1. What is the property's highest and best use? 

2. Is the upland tract a physical entity - or is it 
dependent on annexation with the sovereignty land 
for optimum utility? 

3. If the upland tract is too shallow in depth for 
development to its highest and best use, what added 
depth is necessary to produce a contiguous parcel 
for full utility? 

4. To what degree does the sovereignty land enhance 
the riparian upland, considering development to its 
highest and best use? 

5. How far should the development program be carried in 
order to make it comparable to similar sales in the 
market? 

6. What is the probable or actual trend in the develop- 
ment of submerged lands in the area's 

7. What are the motivations behind the applicant's 
request to purchase the abutting sovereignty land. 
Does the highest and best use study indicate a 
speculative or non-speculative plan of development? 

Classification of the sovereignty land into distinctive 
problem types before the appraiser can apply the appropriate 
premise on which to predicate his valuation estimate: 

1. The upland tract is a physical entity, restricted 
to single-family use. 

2. The upland tract is a physical entity, legally 
permitted multi-family, commercial or industrial 
development; or the upland tract is a physical entity, 
legally available for interim uses but the area is 
not ripe for development into higher economic use. 

3. The upland tract is a narrow strip of land, restricted 



5-7-63 -196- 



in use by its shallow depth which ia inadequate for 
development to its highest and best use. 

The Trustees accepted the report and upon notion by Mr. Ervin 
directed that the minutes make reference to the tables and 
criteria discussed by the Staff Appraiser.

Public Records of Palm Beach County, containing 
515.76 acres, more or leas. 

Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission reported farming as the best 
use and the Governor's Committee on Recreational Development 
recommended public sale. Appraissl secured in November of 1962 
placed s value of 6105.00 per acre with highest and best use sugar 
cans growing. 

Offers to purchase Section 8 were received from Robert E. Mathews, 
Jr., on behalf of Shirley Bros., Inc., and J. W. Brown of Pahokee, 
each offering $105.00 per acre. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees approved offering the tracts 
in Sections 6 and 6 for competitive bids at $110.00 per acre 
starting or base bid. 



MONROE COUHTY - Presented for further consideration was the 
proposal of J. Bruce Vining reported on April 29 to exchange sub- 
merged land under open waters in Tavern ier "Community Harbor" in 
Gov. Lots 3 and 4 of Section 27, Township 62 South. Range 38 East, 
for 70.4 acres of sovereignty mangrove in Sections 27 and 28 in 
same township and range. Presentation of the open waters of the 
Harbor for the public was desirable. 

6. A. Crawshaw, registered surveyor, reported that the existence 
of the government lots under the open waters could not be explained 
conclusively although change from upland could have been the result 
of a violent storm; he saw no basis for presumption of gradual 
erosion. 



5-14-63 -202- 



Mr. Vining proposed to retain the 0.9? ten parcel in the louthweit 
corner of Lot 4 identified as the only upland in the lot. Be 
agreed to include the 0. 57 acre parcel in the aoutheast corner of 
Gov. Lot 3 for exchange. Baking the area offered total 72. 54 acre*. 
The exchange was considered by the Staff to be fair since preparation 
of the aangrove area for development would entail expense not 
required if lots under open waters were filled. Notice to the two 
riparian owners within 1000 feet of the 70.4 acres of mangrove was 
recommended. 

Upon motion adopted without objection, the Trustees approved the 
exchange as recommended by the Staff, subject to issuance of 
notices by registered or certified mail, accompanied by maps, to 
the riparian owners within 1000 feet. 



APPLICATIONS FOR LEASES 

ESCAMBIA. SAHTA ROSA, OKALOOSA. WALTOM. BAY. CULT. FRABKLIH COUNTIES : 
On March 19, 1963 the Trustees authorized advertisement, upon 
request of J. L. McCord, for sealed competitive bids for state 
drilling lease covering 1,496,237 acres, more or less, of sovereignty 
lands under inland waters and offshore waters lying between the 
Florida -Alabama line on the west and the westernmost point of St. 
George Island on the east. Notice was duly published in the affected 
counties and in Leon County. It was anticipated that bide would be 
taken under advisement, pending the holding of hearings in the 
several counties with reference to incorporated towns and improved 
beaches, as required under Section 253.52 Florida Statutes. 

Requests were received May 13 from the Office of the Assistant 
Secretary of Defense and from the Assistant Secretary of the Ksvy 
(Installation and Logistics) and from the United States Air Force, 
Deputy Special Assistant for Installation, for withdrawals of 
extensive areas from the proposed lease on account of military 
operations. 

Two sealed bids were received. California Oil Company. New Orleans, 
Louisiana, submitted offer of cash consideration of S370,4S1.0O, 
which included rentals for the first year. La Rue- Smith Production 
Company, Jackson, Mississippi, offered bid of 510,500.00 for lease 
covering all that portion of the lands offered for lease which lay 
west of 86° 00' West Longitude. 

A number of interested parties were present. Senator Philip Beall, 
representing the Mississippi firm, said the problem posed by the 
request of the Defense Department could be worked out by reaeonable 
regulations to protect navigation and defense. 

Speaking at the request of the Attorney General, Don Monroe of 
Sun oil Company said that the state needed wells drilled, not the 
money received for leasing large tracts which could be held by 
drilling s minimum number of wells. J. L. McCord pointed out that 
the only way to get people interested was to secure large acreages 
which could be explored scientifically, with drilling done in 
favorable areas. Wendell Roberts sainted that a small block, with 
all the statutory requirements of drilling, was not attractive to 
oil interests. 

Attorney General Ervin spoke of the experience gained by the state 
since the early exploration leases. He suggested that careful 
study be made of the whole subject of leases including the site 
of drilling blocks and the time drilling should be accomplished, 
the encouraging of drilling without tying up large acreages of 
offshore land for speculation. 



-203- 5-14-63 



Upon notion by Attorney General Ervin, duly adopted, the Trustee* 
determined that the requests for withdrawals of extensive areas 
be explored further and the Defense Department be asked to define 
their requirements before any decision would be made as to leasing 
all or part of the area, that the whole matter of oil leasing would 
be taken under advisement, that action on the two bids should be 
deferred and the checks were ordered returned without prejudice to 
the rights of the respective bidders and the matter be held subject 
to decision to be made after careful consideration. 



PALM BEACH COUNTY - Trustees and Board of Education joint action. 
On April 23 the Trustees referred to a committee the application 
of Robert E. Mathews, Jr., on behalf of client, for 25-year agri- 
cultural lease of 5,765.27 acres owned as follows: 

State Board of Education i All of Sections 6, 7, 8, 
16 and 17, T. 45 S. , R, 38 E. ; 3,202.36 acres, more or less. 

Trustees of I. I. Fund i All of Sections 1, 12, 13 in T. 
45 S., R. 37 E. , and Section 18, T. 45 S. , R. 38 E.i 2,562.91 
acres, more or less. 

The committee met with Judge Mathews and representatives of his 
client, at which time it was determined that a 15-year lease with 
5-year extension option could be recommended, or that sale might be 
considered. Subsequently applicant offered $115 per acre for 
purchase with $50,000 cash deposit with bid and payment of 40% of 
total purchase price on closing. On Hay 10 the committee considered 
the purchase offsr and an offer by Bill J. Bailey for 15-year lease 
with option to negotiate 5-year extension, with annual rental of 
$3 per acre for first 2 years, $5 per acre for 3rd and 4th, $7 per 
sere for 5th and 6th, $9 per acre for 7th and 8th, $13.50 per acre 
for 9th and 10th, and $16 per acre for the 11th through 15th yeara, 
and a guarantee of $100,000 in improvements within the first 3 years. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees concurred in action by the 
State Board of Education on this date approving the committee 
recommendation for lease instead of sale of the land, and authorized 
advertisement for lease of not less than three contiguous sections 
with required base bid of the rentals offered, prepayment of first 
two years rental and commitment to invest $35,000 per year for first 
three years in improvements to be evidenced annually to the satis- 
faction of the two Boards.

Improvement Fund in their approval on June 21, 1960 of the bulk- 
head line fixed on July 6, 19 59 by the Board of County Commissioners

Trustees by State Road Department Quitclaim Deed dated January 30, 
1963 recorded in Official Records Book 154 at Page 60 of the public 
records of Manatee County, Florida. 

Alao, Puma, Inc., abutting upland owner, represented by Howze and 
Associates, Inc., offered the appraised price of S471.00 per acre 
for a parcel of submerged land in Sarasota Pass in Section 27, 
Township 34 South, Range 16 East, 4.8 acres within the above 
described bulkhead line. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees formally approved the bulk-

requested dedication of exclusive rights covering a described off- 
shore "safety zone" area within the three-mile jurisdiction of the 
State of Florida in the Atlantic Ocean to prevent or restrict any 
development, exploitation or exploration, to remove any structure, 
to police, patrol, preserve and protect and to exclude any and all 
persons and maintain any action to enforce. The north end of the 
area was about ten miles north of Oaytona Beach and was the easterly 



5-21-63 -208- 



two pile* of the three-mile limit for approximately the next thirty- 
three miles (including existing warning area), then the easterly 
two miles of the three-mile limit about forty-one miles to Sebastian 
Inlet, The dedication was intended to protect persons and property 
from possible damage which could result from operation of varied 
projects conducted by the Department of Defense and National Aeronau- 
tics and Space Administration, The proposed instrument would continue 
in force as long as needed by the United States for NASA or Depart- 
ment of Defense programs. 

Governor By rant expressed the opinion that the request was exces- 
sive, amounting to abdication of rights over a large area of Florida's 
territorial waters. The Trustees felt they should be willing to 
cooperate with the federal government by imposing specific regula- 
tions and restrictions on private travel which could be changed from 
time to time. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees declined to take final action 
on the request and directed Engineer Kidd to convey to the federal 
authorities the position taken by the Board. 



DADE COUNTY -Medwin Benjamin on behalf of Miami River Realty Company, 
Inc., holder of Lease No. 1177, requested six-month extension far 
payment of $2370.00, the semi-annual rental due on Hay IS, 1963.

date to rort Myers Shell Company, replacing and covering the same 
area as Lease No. 1344 which expired May 6, 1963. The new lease 
in form approved by the Attorney General required payment of 20^ 
per ton for shell taken, annual minimum of $2,500 and bond of 
$5,000. Approval was recommended by the Staff subject to lessee 
complying with replanting provision in Lease No. 1344. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees concurred with the Board of 
Conservation in approving issuance of the lease to Tort Myers Shall 
Company . 



ESCAMBIA COUNTY - Frank K. Hubbard and Lucille A. Hubbard applied 
for State Permit for installation of commercial piers and docking 
facility in Big Lagoon at applicant's upland in Block 7 of Quina- 
vista Subdivision, Section 24, Township 3 South, Range 31 west, 
Escambia County. Consents of adjacent waterfront owners and pro- 
cessing fee of $100 were filed. 

Petition signed by a number of property owners in Quinavista Subdi- 
vision, represented by Coe and Coe, objected to the proposed pier. 
It was in the same subdivision block where dock permit was granted 
to another applicant about two months ago but delivery was with- 
held for outcome of litigation brought by objectors. 

The Trustees overruled the objections and authorized State Permit 
to the Rubbards, however delivery was ordered withheld for thirty 
days to allow protestants opportunity to take legal action. 



-209- 5-21-63 



LEE COUNTY - Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorized State 
Permit for $100,00 fee to Kinzie Brothers Steamer Line for commercial 
pier in San Carloa Bay at applicant's upland on sambel Island in

waived objection on behalf of the United States as adjacent owner 
on the easti on the west was the Lee County ferry slip. 



MANATEE COUNTY - Coral Shores Development Corporation, holder of 
Purchase Contract No. 23283 dated January 10, 1963 covering 24.3 acres 
of submerged land in Sarasota Bay adjacent to the firm's upland, 
requested deed to 3.7 acres, being 15% of the area sold under contract 
(File No. 1219-41-253.12). Applicant furnished plat of Unit 2 of 
Coral Shores Subdivision which included 95 residential lots, most of 
which were on the firm's upland, and parts of 8 lots were on the 3.7 
acres for which deed was sought. Applicant reported the lots filled 
and desired to record plat and market the 95 lots. 

Staff recommended deed covering the 3.7 acres upon prepayment of the 
second contract installment due July 10, 1963, and that such payment 
be credited on the contract without revision of its terms with any 
adjustment for prepayment to be made in final contract payment. 

The Trustees would be well secured, since upon the making of the 
second contract payment the total amount paid would exceed one- third 
of the principal and interest due. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees approved issuance of deed to 
3.7 acres as recommended by the Staff. 



MARTIN COUNTY - The Town of Jupiter Island applied for state partici- 
pation in a beach nourishment project in the area of acute erosion. 
Under Special Act of 1963 the town had authority to engage in erosion 
control works and to levy tax for the purpose, but since tax revenues 
would not accrue for use the first year. Trustees were requested 
to participate to 50% on a matching basis so that the work might 
proceed. The Coastal Engineering Laboratory studies of the area had 
consistently urged supplementing seawalls and groins with a program 
of beach nourishment. Authority for approval and matching funds was 
provided in Section 253.65 Florida Statutes and the unexpended 
balance was sufficient for the Jupiter island project. 

Col. Herbert Gee said that the unique method proposed, scraping sand 
from between reefs on the ocean floor to deposit in shore stockpiles 
to be distributed up and down the beaches by the surf, should be 
tested on a full scale as its success would result in savings when 
used in other areas of Florida. 

Town Attorney Evans Crary and Admiral Richard Tuggle, Town Manager, 
explained that the large amount budgeted by the town for the project 
would be available to continue the work begun with state matching 
funds, that the work would be a seasonal operation as weather condi- 
tions permit, that bids had been received and it would take about six 
weeks to get into operation. 

The Trustees expressed interest but desired more information before 
making a commitment of funds. The Director suggested that, in event 
a grant was made, quarterly inspections of the experiment should be 
made as recommended by the Coastal Engineering Laboratory. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees took the request under advise- 
ment pending study of the proposed project by the Staff Engineer.

PALM BEACH COUMTY - Director Randolph Hodges of the State Depart- 
ment of Conservation requested extension of time for making study 
of Lake Worth in the area where applications to purchase were 
deferred January 22 and again deferred on March 26 for sixty addi- 
tional days. Because of other studies, particularly on the "red 
tide", the Department had not had opportunity to complete report 
and recommendations on Lake Worth, and the Xzaak Walton League had 
asked that the Trustees extend the deferment. 

Upon motion by Commissioner Conner, duly adopted, the Trustees 
ordered thirty day extension of the deferment for hearing applica- 
tions for submerged lands in Lake worth at Boynton Beach in Palm 
Beach County. 



CAPITOL CEHTER - The office of the Attorney General requested that 
authorization be granted for transfer to the State Road Department 
of Lots 9 and 15 of Green Chaires Addition to the City of Tallahassee, 
as per plat recorded in Deed Book "P", page 70S, public records 
of Leon County, upon receipt of application and reimbursement of 
the costs incurred by the Trustees in acquisition of the parcels. 

Upon motion by Mr. Green, duly adopted, the Trustees authorized 
the transfer as requested.

lands and authorized execution of deeds pertaining thereto. 



BREVARD COUNTY - The Board of County Commissioners of Brevard 
County by Resolution adopted February 21, 1963, requested dedica- 
tion for public recreational purposes under supervision of the 
County Commissioners and the County Recreational Director of the 
S*j of SE^i of Section 13, Township 24 South, Range 36 East, Brevard 
County, being an 80-acre tract dedicated February 2, 1956 as a 
source for road building material but never used by the State Road 
Department which filed assent for the dedication of 1956 to be 
revoked. The SW% of SEh of said section vested in the state under 
tax Certificate No. 893 of 1933 and the SE>» of SE 1 * vested under 
Certificate No. 1403 of 1932 and No. 9086 of 1933.

to revocation, at option of the state, acting through the Trustees, 
in event of non-use for three consecutive years or in event of 
conversion to other use than public recreational purposes. 

The Trustees deferred action pending study and recommendation by

South, Range 37 East, 13.23 acres, more or less, landward of the 
established bulkhead line in Brevard County. The land was adver- 
tised in the Cocoa Tribune, proof of publication filed with the 
Trustees, and no protest was received. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees confirmed sale of the adver- 
tised parcel to the riparian owner at the price offered. 



BROWARD COUNTY - File No. 1288-06-253.12. On April 16, 1963 the 
Trustees authorized advertisement for objections only upon applica- 
tion by Lauderdale Yacht Club, adjacent upland owner, which offered 
the appraised value of $6,325.00 for a parcel of submerged land in 
Stranahan River in Sections 11 and 14, Township 50 South, Range 42 
East, City of Fort Lauderdale, containing 1.10 acres, more or less, 
Broward County, within a bulkhead line approved by the Trustees 
January 23, 1962. Notice of sale was published in the Fort Lauder- 
dale News with proof of publication filed with the Trustees. The 
Yacht Club proposed to dredge to improve channel and boat basin and 
use the 1.10 acre site for deposit of spoil. Joseph A, Hubert 
stated that the application would improve navigation and was not 
contrary to the public interest, that the objections were the same 
as were presented to establishment of the bulkhead line, that the 
city held two local hearings and reaffirmed the line on November 
21, 1961, and that an appeal filed in Broward County Court was 
dismissed. 

A large number of owners of riparian upland within 1000 feet pro- 
tasted the proposed sale, claiming reduction of recreational 
water area to benefit a private club, anticipation of construction 
on the site, blocking of view and depreciation of their properties. 
Representative Emerson Allsworth, attorney for objector Richard 
G. Howse, said the reason stated for purchase (a place to deposit 



5-28-63 -212- 



spoil) was '» device to acquire title for ultimate development since 
many of the protestants offered to help defray the cost of other 
spoil disposition, that any change in the long-established section 
of Fort Lauderdale acted to the detriment of other property owners 
and that the Court had not ruled on the merits of the case. William 
Gundlach, representing objectors, said that previously the Trustees 
had declined to approve the bulkhead line and requested that spoil 
be placed elsewhere, that over a hundred hone owners opposed the 
application by the private club and urged the Board to rule that it 
was not in the public interest. 

Attorney General Ervin said that the Board had agreed that the 
Yacht Club served a quasi-public purpose, that the small proposed 
fill would extend less than other properties and he felt the 
Trustees should follow the city's reconsnendation and confirm the 
sale for which approval was indicated months ago when the issue 
was considered and the bulkhead line approved. Commissioner Conner 
agreed, since the extension would not be greater than others and 
with proper zoning the residents should be protected. 

Governor Bryant suggested that the objectors night have gone to 
the newly constituted city commission for a change in the bulkhead 
line. 

It was the consensus of the Trustees that the objections be over- 
ruled and the sale confirmed, but that deed be withheld for thirty 
days to allow objectors opportunity to take injunctive action in 
accordance with the provisions of Section 253,14 Florida Statutes.

within the amended bulkhead line of Half Dollar la land, 
appraised $200.00 per acre. Seventeen salea in the seme

regarding a navigable channel was recommended for this 
parcel, if sold, as required in the Martha E. Gore conveyance. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorized the above listed 
parcels of submerged land advertised for objections only. 



LEE COUNTY - (a) Bulkhead Line. The bulkhead line fixed on May B, 
1963 by the Board of County Commissioners of Lee County in Charlotte 
Harbor in Sections 13 and 14, Township 43 South, Range 20 East, was 
recommended for approval , except for the initial course which began 
on the existing shore. The upland affected was part of the Boca 
Grande Golf Course on Gasparilla Island and the line {which followed 
the shore line as it existed in 1930) waa fixed in anticipation of 
restoration of a strip of the island which had been lost by 
avulsion resulting froa hurricanes of 1944 and 1960. 

Upon notion by Mr, Green, duly adopted, the Trustees formally 
approved the bulkhead line established by Lee County on May 8, 1963, 
with the exception of the line's initial course which began on the 
existing shore. 

(b) Disclaimer. Gasparilla Inn, Inc. , owner of the upland to 
which the now submerged area landward of the above mentioned 
bulkhead line was riparian, applied for disclaimer to 7.8 acres, 
more or less, which was lost by a severe storm in 1944 and by 
Hurricane Donna in 1960. Presented as evidence were three affida- 
vits by long-time residents of the area affirming location of the 
natural shore line and loss of said area. Certificate by a registered

charge .

First Addition, applied for a deed covering a filled extension of 
said lot in Lake Tarpon, Pinellas County. The lake had no surface 
outlet but recent records showed the lake level fluctuated between 
1.08 and 6.42 feet mean sea level indicating under ground connection 
with other water areas, possibly tidal. Applicant advised that 
the lot waa insufficient in depth for a residence and upon failure 
of the old bulkhead it was replaced further into the lake and 
filled behind the new bulkhead in 1957, Applicant desired to 
clear his title . The extension involved one-fourth acre which 
appeared to flood periodically. The office of the Attorney General 
suggested handling in the same manner as a previous lake fill, 
in which case a deed was made to the riparian owner. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorized issuance of 
quitclaim deed for $100.00 minimum charge. 



DADE COUNTY - Governor Bryant requested consideration of memorandum 
of the Staff Engineer with reference to the proposed Seadade Ship 
Channel and the causeway to the City of Islandia. Metropolitan 
Dade County had recently submitted to the Trustees a resolution 
recommending alignment of channel and causeway, however the county 
recommendations left certain questions unanswered. In view of 



5-28-63 -216- 



the controversial nature of the project and the widespread public 
interest, a public hearing in Dade County was suggested by Mr. Kidc. 

Upon motion by Commissioner Conner, seconded by Comptroller Green 
and adopted, the Trustees appointed Robert C. Parker, the Assistant 
Attorney General assigned to the Board for its legal work, as examiner 
to conduct a public hearing at some time and place in Dade County 
to be selected by him, with any necessary assistants, and that repre- 
sentatives of Metropolitan Cede County and the City of Islandia be 
requested to participate in the hearing. 



PACE COUMTY - Norman Miles, B. W. Ervin, III, and Charles Lipkins, 
representing private owners of property in First Ocean Front Subdi- 
vision abutting the existing Col line Avenue which the State Road 
Department planned to widen, proposed modification of "outlet" areas 
bordering Indian Creek for which confirmation for conveyance to 
eighteen private owners was granted by the Trustees on March 12, 1963, 
under application by the City of Miami Beach in connection with 
grant of easement in Indian Creek for widening the state road. The 
outlot parcels conveyed aggregated 2,114 acres which were to be used 
for beautif ication. 

Under the new proposal all or a section of the road widening project 
would be moved westerly and would include all or part of said out- 
lot parcels recently deeded (File Mo. 1276-13-253.12), and a strip 
of existing Collins Avenue adjacent to the upland ownerships on 
the easterly side would be made available to these abutting owners. 
City Resolution No. 10999 adopted May 22, 1963, was filed, approving 
the relocation subject to approval by the Trustees and the State 
Road Department. 

Inasmuch as the changes were understood to require revision of the 
state Road Department's construction plans and time schedule, motion 
was made by Mr. Ervin and duly adopted that the Trustees agree to 
cooperate by revising the dedication and outlot deeds, provided 
the Road Department made revision of its plans and the necessary 
recall of deeds was made, and amended maps and other necessary 
information were made available. 



GLADES COUNTY - Upon motion by Mr. Larson, duly adopted, the Trustees 
approved assignment of Grazing Lease No. 405-Revifed by J. H. 
Peeples and w. W. i-eeples , lessees, in favor of Branson, Inc., formal 
instrument of assignment and acceptance of the lease provisions 
and covenants by Bronson, Inc., having been filed in the Land Office.

lands. 



MARTIN COUNTY - (CSA M-2-A3), Florida Inland Navigation District, 
on behalf of the United States, applied for temporary easement for 
construction of dike and fill across the recent breakthrough of 
Peck's Lake in the Gomez Grant on Jupiter Island to the Atlantic 
Ocean. 

Upon motion by Mr. Green, duly adopted, the Trustees granted ease- 
ment to expire June 30, 1964, subject to the District procuring and 
furnishing written consent by riparian upland owner for the con- 
struction on sovereignty land riparian to lite private ownership 
which was directly affected. 



•217- 5-28-63 



SARASOTA COUMTY - Upon Motion by Mr. Green, duly adopted, the Trustee* 
formally approved fill permit granted May 20, 1963 by the City of 
Sarasota to Arvida Realty Company to fill a parcel of submerged land 
in Section 26, Township 36 South, Range 17 East, formerly conveyed 
by Trustees Deed No. 20479 dated December 12, 1957. 



ST. LUCIE COUKTt - On May 7, 1963 the Trustees considered and 
referred back to St. Lucie County the bulkhead line fixed February 
19, 1963 around existing privately owned Mettles island in the Indian 
River. The Board instructed the Staff to explore the possibility of 
an exchange of submerged lands in the river at Hetties Island in order 
that the riverward limits of the bulkhead line might be moved land- 
ward. The island owner previously purchased fifty acres west of and 
adjacent to the island and the bulkhead line was fixed to encompass 
the island, the submerged land sold and an additional 23.43 acres of 
submerged land on the landward side. The owner agreed to exchange 
the westernmost 23.43 acres of his 1956 purchase of fifty acres for 
the equivalent area owned by the Trustees on the landward (mainland) 
side, which would retract the riverward bulkhead line 549.26 feet. 
If given preliminary approval by the Trustees, the interested parties 
would seek change in the bulkhead line. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, duly adopted, the Trustees tentatively 
approved the bulkhead line subject to revision by the county, and 
agreed to the suggested land exchange subject to advertisement for 
objections. 



Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees adjourned.

MISCELLANEOUS 



BREVARD, VOLUSIA COUNTIES - On May 21, 1963 the Trustees referred 
to Engineer William R. Kidd the request by the U. S. Army Corps 
of Engineers for dedication of exclusive rights to prevent develop- 
ment, exploitation or exploration of any natural resources or 
improvements of any nature, with right to remove or destroy any 
structure or improvement, covering an of f shore "safety zone" within 
the three-mile jurisdiction of the State of Florida. The north end 
of the area was about ten miles north of Daytona Beach and was the 
easterly two miles of the three-mile limit for approximately the 
next thirty-three miles (including existing warning area), then 
the easterly two miles of the three-mile limit about forty-one 
miles to Sebastian Inlet. The proposed dedication was intended to 
protect persons and property from possible damage which could result 
from operation of varied projects conducted by the Department of 
Defense and National Aeronautics and Space Administration. 

Pursuant to conference with the Chief, Real Estate Division of the 
Corps of Engineers, the District Engineer expressed willingness 
for the matter to be resolved by adoption by the Trustees of a 
permanent policy applicable to the defined area, that no permits 
for installations, uses or operations would be issued by the Trustees 
without approval and concurrence of the Corps , acting for arc in 
behalf of those Department of Defense Agencies and NASA operating in 
the Canaveral project. 

Inasmuch as all permits, leases or grants for construction, instal- 
lations and operations in the coastal and intra coastal waters are 
subject to compliance with federal requirements of navigation and the 
proposed policy would be in the interest of public safety, the Staff 
recommended adoption of a policy for the duration of the NASA and 
Defense Department operations in the zone. 



6-4-63 -220- 



Upon motion by Attorney General Ervin, seconded and adopted, the 
Trustees, desiring to cooperate with the federal agencies in the 
interest of public safety, directed that for the period of the 
National Aeronautics and Space Administration and Department of 
Defense projects in the Canaveral zone, no state permits, leases 
or grants would be issued by the Trustees for that area defined in 
the request without the approval and concurrence of the U. S. 
Army Corps of Engineers. 



BREVARD COUNTY - Upon motion adopted without objection, the 
Trustees authorized issuance of fill permit applied for by J.A.w. 
Davis, Jr., on behalf of Pelican Cove Apartments and Embassy 
Apartments, to dredge 110,000 cubic yards of fill material from 
the bottoms of the Banana River to fill uplands in Section 31, 
Township 24 South, Range 3? East, for which $2700.00 was remitted 
in payment at the standard yardage rate. 



DADE COUNTY - The City of Miami by Resolution Mo. 34606 adopted 
May IS, 1963, requested conveyance of the submerged land between 
the bulkhead line and Royal Road in Section 21, Township 54 South, 
Range 41 East for street and other incidental purposes. Arrange- 
ments had been made for filling simultaneously with filling of 
adjacent submerged lands.

cation of the strip of submerged land to the City of Miami for 
public street purposes.

disclaimer pursuant to provisions of Section 253.129, Florida 
Statutes, to Mrs. Hell L. C. Bostwick, riparian upland owner, covering

the established bulkhead line. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorized disclaimer to 
the applicant for SI 0.00 processing fee. 



INDIAN RIVER COUNTY - Indian River Mosquito Control District 
requested adoption of a policy by the Trustees whereunder the Staff 
might examine plans and authorize limited dike construction and 
drainage ditching in marginal swamp areas without changing legal 
status of the areas so worked, all in accordance with standards 
of the State Board of Health and in accordance with authority and 
provisions of Chapter 24600, Acts of 1947 as amended by Chapter 
61-2278. The District had maintained excellent records of its 
operations and it was in the public interest to permit (1) construc- 
tion of dikes upon the perimeter of mangrove and swamp areas to keep 
the enclosed area flooded to a depth which would support fishi 
and (2) cutting of drainage ditches through mangrove and perimeter 
escarpments in order to drain stagnant, mosquito-breeding ponds or 
maintain connection with the open waters in order to eliminate 
stagnation. 

Chapter 24600, as amended, authorized such operations. To assure 
more complete coordination between the District and the Trustees it 
was recommended that the Staff be given authority to review plans 
for such diking and ditch construction and to authorize auch limited 
work in Indian River County. From time to time the District would

need to fill by hydraulic fill certain mosqui to- breeding areas and 
the policy recommended for that type of operation was approval baaed 
on submission of plan, determination as to whether the area was swamp 
and overflew or tidal sovereignty land, and authorisation for such 
filling on state owned land would be by action of the Trustees. 

Upon notion duly adopted, the reconsiendat ions were approved as 
policy of the Board.

Tallahassee. Florida 
June 11, 1963 



The Trustees of the Internal Improvement Fund met on this date in 
the Board 'Kootn of the Governor's Office in the Capitol. 

Present: [arris Bryant Governor 

J. Edwin Larson Treasurer 

Richard V. Ervin Attorney General 



Van H. Ferouson Director-Secretary 

William H. Kidd Engineer 



Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees approved minutes of the 
meeting on June 4, 1963, which were approved by the Attorney 
General and copy furnished to each member. 



Governor Bryant discussed his reasons for the veto of Committee 
Substitute for House Bill No. 1774 introduced by Representative 
E. J. Gong of Dade County which provided for a ninety-day period 
for counties to determine whether lands for which Trustees had 
received purchase applications should be devoted to public outdoor 
recreational purposes and provided that upon receipt of resolution 
of the Board of County Commiss loners citing tentative plan and time t 
schedule for development, the Trustees should convey the land with-? 
out cost to the county in which the land was located. The stenbers *3 
agreed that while the intent of the measure was good the veto was 
proper, that in addition to the interest of the counties the state 
had an interest in the public lands which were often required for 
state uses, that outdoor recreation was not always the highest and 
best use of land, that local Governments should be given opportunity 
to assert any needs at the proper time which the Trustees had dona 
for years by notices of sales furnished to counties by registered 
or certified mail, and under the bulkhead law local governing 
bodies had opportunity to fix development limits for private 
riparian owners. It was felt that the proposed bill overlooked 
numerous considerations and was contrary to the state program of 
outdoor recreation areas. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees directed Mr. Ferguson to con- 
fer with Mr. Gong on policies and procedures which might be developed 
to batter coordinate the planning at state and local levels for 
disposition of Trustees' lands to meet the needs and welfare of the 
public. 



DADE COUHTY - File No. 1306-13-253.12. On April 29 the Trustees 
considered application by Islandia Properties Company, abutting

Atlantic Ocean in Section 18, Township 57 South. Range 42 East, 3.0 
acres at Elliott Key in the City of Islandia, Dade County, within 
the established bulkhead line. The land was advertised in the Mews 
Leader, Homestead, Florida, proof of publication furnished the 
Trustees, and no objections to the Bale were received. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees confirmed sale to the appli- 
cant at $380.00 per acre, the appraised price. 



•223- 6-11-63 



DADE COUNTY - File So. 1311-13-253.12. On April 23 the Trustees 
considered offer of $100.00 from Wallace S. Kreidt, abutting upland 
owner, for 0.075 of an acre of submerged land in Section 1, Town- 
ship 54 South, Range 41 East, in the Miami River landward of the 
established bulkhead line adjacent to applicant's upland in Lot 
1-B and part of Lot 2-B, Riverside waterfronts Subdivision. City of 
Miami. Based upon the information discussed April 23, the Trustees 
authorized advertisement for objections only and notice was published 
in the Miami Daily News, proof of publication filed, and no protest 
received. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees confirmed sale of the parcel 
to Mr. Kreidt for 5100.00. 



PALM BEACH COUNTY - On April 23 the Trustees authorized competitive 
sale of the scattered five acre tracts in Sections 4 and 5, Town- 
ship 45 South, Range 35 East, consisting of Vh of SEd of SZk of 
NEk in Section 5 and Tracts 16, 17, 18, 21, 37, 45, 46, 47, 48, 81. 
82, 83, 109, 110 and that part of Tract 2 lying west of Miami Canal 
right of way, all in Okeechobee Fruit Lands Company Subdivision of 
Section 4, per plat recorded in Plat Book 1, Page 113, public 
records of Palm Beach County. J. W. Brown offered the appraised 
value of $78.75 per acre as base bid for the sale. Notice of com- 
petitive bidding was published in Belle Glade Herald, Belle Glade, 
Florida, and proof of publication was filed with the Trustees. 

The tracts in Section 4 were in a subdivision platted in 1911 
apparently without ground survey to establish the interior lots 
and roadways. The lots vested in the state under the Murphy Act 
and were purchased by the Trustees. It was necessary to make 
exception of the portion of Tracts 16 and 2 within the Bo lies 
Canal right of way which was 260 feet wide but the width to be 
excepted was vague, estimated at 17 5 feet, and exception was made 
of that part of Tract 2 within right of way of Miami canal, all in 
accordance with request of Central and Southern Florida Flood 
Control District. 

Palm Beach County made a request for reservation of 100 foot 
right of way along the west side of the right of way of Miami 
Canal in Tract 2, apparently based on lack of information as to 
the irregular shape of the right of way of said canal as hitherto 
widened, said lot being reported as the only one now having direct 
public access. The grant of the requested right of way would have 
included a very irregular alignment for road across only the one 
tract and less than the total width of the tract. The Trustees 
took no action on the county's request. 

Since the individual tract dimensions did not appear to be 
established by ground survey and the width for the Bolles Canal 
exemption was vague, it was recommended that sale be made on the 
basis of a total of 70.14 acres as computed by the Staff, subject 
to right of purchaser within 30 days to proceed with survey to 
provide more precise area for payment. 

J. W. Blevins filed bid of $8240.00 based on the estimated area 
of 79.76 acres, or $103.31 per acre. Competitive bidding by 
several parties resulted in high bid of $285.00 per acre by J. M. 
Brown of Pahokee. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, duly adopted, the Trustees confirmed 
sale to the high bidder, Mr. Brown, subject to right of the 
purchaser to verify acreage by survey, as recommended.

after. It was explained that there was provision for renewal of 
the lease only in event of actual production. 

Attorney General Ervin approved awarding the subject lease on the 
terms advertised but recommended shortening the primary term of 
future leases to insure early drilling on leased lands. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees accepted the bid of W. M. 
& A. P. Fuller and South Penn Oil Company and authorized issuance 
of state drilling lease.

R. Kidd the application of the Town of Jupiter Island for state 
participation, as provided for in Section 253.65 F.S., in a beach 
nourishment project in an area of acute erosion. In view of legis- 
lation having passed providing a Division of Beaches and Shores

complete acquisition of a aite bounded by Monroe, Liberty, Adams

of the loan in order that funds received by the Trustees might be 
committed for the purchase. The Commission would pay interest equal,

located parcel would be held for such a time when it would be avail-

advisement the request of Florida Industrial Commission for loan 
of $200,000.00 to assist in purchase of five parcels in Block 7, 
Doggett's Hap of Jacksonville, which were needed to complete acquisi- 
tion of the block bounded by Adams, Liberty, Monroe and Market Streets.

repayment could be conmenced in 1964, completed within a period of 
not more than five years, with interest of approvimately 3>rX providing 
liquidation of bonds by the Trustees is not necessary. Since it 
was anticipated that the entire sum of $200,000.00 would not be 
required as a lump-sum advance, the Staff believed that installments 
could be paid out as separate parcels were acquired, without liquida- 
ting bonds.

Trustees to have the Staff Appraiser make appraisal of the five 
parcels and bill the Commission for the expense involved.

to appraise the parcels, with the actual expense to be invoiced 
for payment to the Trustees by the Industrial Commission.

MISCELLANEOUS 



BREVARD COUNTY - Pile No. 1295-05-253.124, Upon Motion adopted 
without objection, the Trustees formally approved the fill permit 
issued by the City of Tituaville, Brevard County, on May 14, 1963 
to fill the 0. 144 acre parcel of submerged land previously sold 
by the Trustees to Oscar B, Hunter, Jr. , in the referenced appli- 
cation file. 



BREVARD COUNTY - The Trustees discussed generally bulkhead lines 
in the Banana River in the City of Cocoa Beach, Brevard County. 
Many calls and letters had been received and because of fast growth 
and development in the area there was need for early consideration 
of the bulkhead lines. The Director displayed a nap showing lines 
contemplated for the whole zone north of the Meat Point area including 
areas both within and outside the municipality. The Trustees* 
Engineer, who had vielted the area and conferred with representatives 
of several owners, felt that the westerly bulkhead line unit north 
of the city's golf course area should be shifted about 1500 feet 
easterly. He recommended that a 200- foot minimum width should be 
provided between exterior and interior bulkhead lines both in the city 
and outside, and that the bulkhead line should be fixed for city 
and county areas. Comptroller Green suggested a smooth transition 
from the corner of the golf course area. In either case, a private 
development plan which had been submitted would have to be modified. 
The county had not submitted bulkhead lines for the area south of 
Sections 9 and 10, but lines for the north half of the area might 
be acted upon. 

Before official consideration of the bulkhead lines the Trustees 
requested Mr. Kidd to confer further with the city regarding 
consideration of adjustment of the line north of the golf course 
area and the provision of a 200-foot separation between the extarlor 
and interior lines. Any such changes should be made by the city 
and submitted with amended maps and resolution before the hearing. 

It was so ordered.

February 20, 1952, being 1.205 acres within the established bulk- 
head line. Deferment periods ordered by reason of protests to

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees formally approved the fill 
permit granted by the City of Boynton Beach to Mr. Roush. 



PALM BEACH COUNTY - Pile Bo. 1197-50-253,12. The Director recom- 
mended issuance of temporary easement to the United States for dis-

Hoyagaard et al, was being advertised for objections for sale on

waterway improvement would be effective July 1, 1963. Since the 
parcel was not submerged, the legal rights of the Trustees would 
not be impaired by raising the elevation of the parcel .

MARTIN COUNTY - Presented for consideration were the unit of revised 
bulkhead line adopted June 12, 1962 by the Board of County CoramF- 
e loners of Martin County and the bulkhead line adopted June 15, 
1963 by the Town of Ocean Breeze Park. Resolution of the County 
Board of August 28, 1962 requested that Trustees reconsider their 
rejection on August 14, 1962 of said unit of revised bulkhead line 
which began 250 feet offshore at the right of way of State Road 
AIA- Jensen Beach bridge and ended at the north end of a line vhich 
the county understood the Town of Ocean Breeze Park had fixed 1000 
feet offshore, which municipal line in 1963 had not been fixed 
according to the statutory requirements.

By Ordinance No. 7 the Town fixed its bulkhead line in accordance 
with Section 253.122 Florida Statutes, located offshore from all 
existing lands within the town bordering on the Indian River and 
the county has initiated a public hearing to be held July 9 to 
amend its bulkhead line (now 250 feet offshore) south of Ocean 
Breeze Park and provide a transition back into the existing county 
line 250 feet offshore from the proposed revision southerly to the 
Town of Sewall's Point. Transcript of the town's public hearing 
on June 15, 1963 disclosed objections by the Izaak Walton League 
and three citizens. Attention was called to a request made June 25 
by the County to the State Board of Conservation for an ecological 
survey to aid in future planning but stating that such survey was not 
sought to oppose or delay any bulkhead line matter now pending for 
consideration by the Trustees. 

Evans Crary, Jr., representing the Town of Ocean Breeze Park, 
stated that the bulkhead line and proposed development would bene- 
fit the town and the whole Jensen Beach area, eliminate an objection- 
able low tide mud flat and make the river more navigable. Also 
speaking in favor of the extension were Harry Hoke, Mayor of Ocean 
Breeze Park, w. B. Tilton, R. V. Johnson and others. Petitions 
signed by many property owners and residents in favor of the bulk- 
head line were presented. 

abjections were filed by Martin County Chapters of Izaak Walton 
League and Audubon Society, twenty-two individuals, and petitions 
signed by a large number of residents of Martin County and the 
Jensen Beach zone and the following objectors were heard i C. Hi 
Kindred, Robert T. Bair, Owen Lockwood, Martin Gillman and others. 
Objectors charged that approval of the lines, sales and filling 
would create a sawtooth shore line, damage fish and wildlife, 
destroy natural beauty and that extension was not needed. 

Cirector Randolph Hodges of the State Board of Conservation advised 
that County Attorney Dean Tooker had requested an ecological survey 
to aid in future planning but not to delay pending hearings, how- 
ever the Conservation Department was able to make studies only 
upon request by a state agency and if the Trustees desired a 
report on the area it would be made within forty-five days or less, 
if possible. 

Two applications for purchase of submerged land within the proposed 
bulkhead line, shown on the meeting agenda, were passed without 
consideration on this date. 

Conn motion duly adopted, the Trustees deferred action on the bulk- 
head line fixed by Martin County June 12, 1962 and the line adopted 
June 15, 1963 by the Town of Ocean Breeze Park pending survey of 
the area by the Board of Conservation and a report on the physical 
situation by the Trustees' Engineer, 



BRAOFORE COUNTY - Mrs. Constance Barnhill requested permit to 
construct a timber breakwater 40 feet long in front of her fishing 
camp property on Lake Santa Fe (a meandered lake) in Section 1, 
Township 9 South, Range 22 East, in order to minimize shoaling of 
her boat basin and buffeting of boats caused by prevailing winds 
across the lake. Applicant advised that the problem developed after 
a neighbor removed trees in the margin of the lake and hauled in 
sand to improve his beach adjacent to her property. The office of 
the Attorney General informally advised that issuance of permit was 
in order. In response to notice issued to the adjacent owner, E. w. 
Revel waived objection provided the breakwater did not extend in 
front of his property. 



7-2-63 -242- 



Upon notion duly adopted, the Trustees authorized permit for $25.00 
processing fee with appropriate conditions for location of the break- 
water so that no navigation channel was obstructed and no part was 
in front of the adjacent ownership, with bond of $200.00 to secure 
removal in event adverse effects resulted from the installation. 



BREVARD COUNTY - Attorney Norman J. Smith, on behalf of landowners 
in Crane Creek Drainage District, requested that appointments of 
the following Supervisors be made by the Truatees, as the Board of 
Drainage Commissioners of the State under provisions of Section 
298.12 Florida Statutes: Kelly George, Clark Strohmer and John H. 
Evans, Jr., for one, two and three year terms, respectively. Pursuant 
to advertised call for land owners' meeting there was less than a 
quorum present in person or by proxy and insufficient acreage 
represented, and no legal election could be had. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, duly adopted, the Trustees appointed 
as Supervisors of Crane Creek Drainage District Kelly George for 
a one year term, Clark Strohmer for a two year term and John H. 
Evans, Jr. for a three year term. 



HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY - Upon motion adopted without objection, the 
Trustees granted temporary easement to the State Road Department for 
dredging in an area in the Little Manatee River in Section 18, Town- 
ship 32 South, Range 19 East, 1.19 acrea in Hillsborough County, 
for construction of State Road No. 45. 



MANATEE COUNTY - The Attorney General suggested that a field exami- 
nation be made by a registered land surveyor to determine the loca- 
tion and existence of mean high water lines which might exist in 
the mangrove or marsh areas marginal to Government Lots 3 and 4 in 
Section 27, Township 33 South, Range 17 East, long involved in 
litigation in the Circuit Court Case No. 14711 Nina Washburn v. 
Trustees of the Internal Improvement Fund. Costs incident to the 
study were assured by E. C. Kavanaugh, Jr., attorney representing 
the interests of W. V. Knott and Manuel V. Cowen, Of prime signi- 
ficance was determination of whether the lands involved were sovereignty 
tidal areas or swamp and overflow lands and the data to be secured 
was needed in connection with defense of the Trustees in the pending 
suit. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, duly adopted, the Trustees authorised 
field examination of the area by a registered land surveyor for 
the purpose recommended. 



ORANGE COUNTY - Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorised 
issuance of permit, subject to final approval of the Game and 
Fresh Water Fish Commission, to Nelson and Company for $25.00 mini- 
mum charge for aale of 400 cubic yards of material to be dredged 
from Lake Pickett for improvement of applicant's upland property in 
Sections 3 and 10 in Township 22 South, Range 32 East. 



POLK COUNTY - Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorized 
issuance of permit, subject to final approval of Game and Fresh 
Water Fish Commission, to Ben Bill Griffin, Inc., for $500.00 
for 10,000 cubic yards of material to be dredged from bottoms of 
Lake Reedy to improve applicant's lake front property in Section 33, 
Township 31 South, Range 28 East.

7-9-63 -246- 



at Plantation Key in Monro* County. The land was advertised for 
objections only in the Coral Tribune, proof of publication filed 
and no protest received . 

Upon notion duly adopted, the Trustees confirmed sale to the appli- 
cant at the price offered. 



MONROE COOMTY - File Mo- 1327-44-253.12. On Hay 28 th* Trustees 
considered application by Curtis B. Newton, abutting upland owner, 
with offer of $300.00 per acre or $100.00 minima* in this instance, 
for a parcel of submerged land in Largo Sound in Section 14, Town- 
ship 61 South, Range 39 East, at Key Largo containing 0.26 acre, 
■ore or less. The parcel was advertised for objections only in 
the Coral Tribune and proof of publication was filed with the 
Trustees. 

Objections filed by George N. T. Snare, Oennle H. Mayo and C. R. 
Sawyer were based on disagreement with the survey. Th* original 
subdivision nap filed in 1925 contained obvious errors , including 
location of the shore line. An amended plat filed in 1927 corrected 
the shore line and other discrepancies, but all of the land had 
bean sold, controversy developed and the amended plat was officially 
ruled void. Many lota vested in the State under the Murphy Act and 
were sold. Mr. Snare held title to land more than 400 feet to 
the southweet under a Murphy Act deed and appeared to disagree with 
all surveys made in th* area, believing his land extended further 
east, while Mr. Mayo claimed his land lay further west, possibly 
by reason of one or more open- end surveys which did not reconcile 
the ground area with the plat of the subdivision. Applicant owned 
Lots 9 and 10 but Mr. Mayo as owner of Lots 3 to 8, contending 
that his boundary was further west than applicant's survey showed, 
cut an entrance canal to connect Largo Sound with an interior basin 
(borrow pit) and appeared to have cut part of the canal on appli- 
cant's Lot 9, across private land of others and a dedicated street. 
Applicant's surveyor made an overall survey and found no land 
shortage, and applicant applied for no submerged land in front of 
the northeasterly 15 feet of this Lot 9 (in the Mayo Canal). 

Upon motion by Mr. Ervin, duly adopted, the Trustees overruled 
objections and confirmed sale of the portion of th* s ubme rged 
parcel directly in front of Lot 10 and the unexcavated portion of 
Lot 9 of Block 8, Anglers ParX Shores, Plat Book 1, Page 14B, 
subject to applicant amending his application to exclude any sub- 
merged land in front of the cut water passage to the old borrow 
pit. 



PALM BEACH COUMTY ,- Tile No. 1202-50-253.12. On May 28 the Trustees 
considered application by Marieange w. Hanson, abutting upland owner, 
for a parcel of submerged land in Lake North in Section 34, Town- 
ship 44 South, Range 43 East, 3.616 acres in the City of Lake 
Worth within the established bulkhead line. The land was advertised 
for object iona only in the Palm Beach Post, with proof of publica- 
tion filed in the Trustees' office. 

Central and Southern Plorida flood Control District waived objection 
to th* sale. 

Prank H. Stearns and Edward R. Wolfe protested the proposed sale 
as damaging to natural resources, view and natural beauty of the 
shoreline. Staff did not consider the objections valid, the 
land being within th* bulkhead line established by th* City of 
Lake Worth and its uae being within the jurisdiction of the munici- 
pality as to zoning. 



-247- 7-9-63 



Attorney General Ervin exprtssee the eseneral feeling of the membrrs 
that local Governmental boaies had the primacy responsibility for 
firinc limit* for sales and filling by location of bulkhead lines 
vhich were then referred to the Trustees for formal approval or 
rejection, and that after any sale a local fill permit was required, 
also subject to Trustees' approval. He pointed out that conserva- 
tion enthusiasts objected to any sales of submerged land, and the 
Board tried to balance public rights and riohts of private riparian 
owners. Governor Bryant felt that the procedures followed were 
proper, being based on establishment of bulkhead lines by the local 
units, however he expressed a desire that in Lake Worth the linos 
had been fixed nearer the shoreline. Mr. Conner commented that it 
vas not uncommon for objections to be made by people who were already 
enjoying the same type of fill extensions. 

Upon motion by Mr. Green, duly adopted, the Trustees overruled the 
objections and confirmed sale at the appraised price, 51925.00 per 
acre. 



VOLUSIA COUNTY - File No. 1328-64-253.13. On May 28 the Trustees 
considered application by Dorothy K. Schoenith, abutting upland 
owner, to purchase a parcel of sovereignty land in the Halifax River 
in Section 11, Township 16 South, Range 33 tast, 7.22 acres within 
the amended bulkhead line of Half Dollar Island in the area where 
a number of sales were confirmed on March 12th. The land was adver- 
tised in the Daytona Beach News-Journal, proof of publication filed 
and no protest received. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees confirmed sale for $200.00 
per acre appraised price, deed to contain the restriction regarding 
a navigable channel which was required in a previous conveyance to 
Martha E. Gore (see March 12, 1963 Minutes). 



PALM BEACH COUHTY - On May 14, 1963 the Trustees and the State 
Board of Education authorized advertisement for competitive bids 
to be received for 15-year agricultural lease with 5-year extension

in Township 45 South, Range 37 East and Section 18 in 
Township 45 South, Range 38 East; 2,562.91 acres, more

The lease was advertised in the Belle Glade Herald, proof of publi- 
cation filed in the Trustees' office and prospectus was furnished 
upon request. Requirements for bidding were base or starting bid 
of not less than stated yearly amounts averaging not less than an 
annual rental of S 10. 87 5 per acre, each bid to be accompanied by 
certified or cashier's check for 510,000 payable to the State 
Board of Education and Trustees which might be applied toward the 
required advance payment of the first two years' rental, lessee 
to expend not less than $3 5,000 in improvements each year for the 
first three years. 

The Director called the land out and bids were taken first for 
three contiguous sections, then for the entire acreage as a whole, 
with five parties participating in the bidding. The high bid for 



7-9-63 -248- 



the whole tract made by A. Dude & Sons, Inc., averaged 514.00 per 
acre annual rental which at the end of the 20-year period would 
total SI .614, 275.60 plus the required amount of improvements 
incorporated in the land. The following graduated annual rental* 
were offered: 53.90 per acre for first two years, 56.50 per acre 
for 3rd and 4th years, $9.10 per acre for 5th and 6th years, 
$11.70 per acre for 7th and 8th years, $12,925 per acre for 9th

State Board of Education, duly adopted, the two boards concurred 
in acceptance of the high bid for the entire acreage made by A. 
Duda & Sons, Inc., on the basis of the above defined annual rentals, 
prepayment of first two years' rental and commitment to invest 
$35,000 per year for the first three years in improvements of the 
leased premises. 



APPLICATIONS FOR LAMP 

DADE COUHTY - rile No. 1309-13-253.12. James Deering Danielson 
and wife, riparian upland owners, offered $3888.00 per acre or 
$855.36 for the parcel (the area appraisal approved by Staff 
Appraiser] for 0.22 acre of submerged land in Biscayne Bay in 
Section 21, Township 54 South, Range 41 East, lying between appli- 
cant's upland in Block 7, The Royal Gardens, Plat Book 20, Page 3, 
and the established bulkhead line in the City of Miami. Applicant 
desired to purchase and fill before the hurricane season was far 
advanced. 

Upon notion by Mr. Green, duly adopted, the Trustees authorized 
advertisement of the parcel for objections only. 



DADE COUMTY - File No. 1334-13-253.12. Carlton A. Hunt, riparian 
upland owner, offered $500.00 per acre for 1.4 acre parcel of 
sovereignty land in Biscayne Bay between Lot 23 John T. Peacock 
Subdivision and the established bulkhead line in the City of Miami. 
It was ascertained that practically all of the parcel was above 
mean high water, that applicant proposed to dry- fill without dredging, 
the area had long been an objectionable pocket, Butler Act filling 
began about 1938 and in 1955 it was reported that the United States 
Engineers office in Miami Beach gave informal permission for filling 
to the U. s. Pierhead-Bulkhead line which was subsequently established 
as Dade County bulkhead line under the 1957 Bulkhead Act. The 
Trustees' Staff was unable to define the area filled prior to 
June 11, 1957 which would be subject to disclaimer for a nominal 
handling charge. Acceptance of the offer of $500 per acre (appraised 
$300 per acre in 1957) and advertisement for objections were recom- 
mended. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees approved the recommendation 
and authorized the parcel advertised for objections only. 



DADE COUNTY - Attention was called to several applications involving 
submerged lands adjacent to the west shore of Biscayne Bay deferred 
on February 5 for two weeks pending further report from the Board 
of Conservation and other applications subsequently received, 
including several within municipalities, which had not been presented 
for the reason that the applications involving larger areas appeared 

I 



*249- 7-9-63 



to require a decision as to whether any sales and filling along 
the nainland shore were to be permitted. Staff had been advised 
to await conclusion of the Legislative Session. 

On March 12 the Dade County Board of County Commiss loners adopted 
Resolution No. 8417 declaring as the policy position of Dade County 
concerning sales of submerged lands "that it is hereby declared 
and established as the policy of Dade County that objections to 
all applications by riparian upland owners for the acquisition of 
submerged lands lying within approved bulkhead lines are hereby 
withdrawn, with the understanding that applications for permits to 
fill and develop such submerged lands shall be considered on the 
basis of the need and desirability of appropriate and reasonable 
allocation of lands to satisfy the future needs of the public in 
connection with the proposed plan of development thereof by the 
owners thereof.* The Resolution further requested the Trustees 
"to give favorable consideration to the policy expressed ... and 
to render full cooperation to Dade County in the accomplishment of 
the objective of providing for proper preservation of adequate land 
use to satisfy the future needs of the public in respect to the 
development of submerged lands sold and conveyed to upland owners 
and adjacent lands." 

Staff was unable to state whether the blanket withdrawal of county 
objection to sales could be approved without subscribing to the 
proposal that the Trustees support the county in whatever its 
undefined requirements might be for "proper preservation of land 
use" to satisfy needs of the public at an indefinite future date 
after the riparian owners had purchased at full appraised values 
predicated upon the free right to develop and use consistent with 
local zoning. The Staff felt that the riparian owner, if entitled 
to purchase, would reasonably expect to have the right to develop his

recommendation on proposed Seadade ship channel and 
possible use of spoil for causeway to Islandia. 
County's recommendation subsequently received expressing 
preference for route of ship channel and disposition 
of surplus spoil. 

The following applications covering su b merged lands outside munici- 
palities had not been presented but might be acted upon when those 
in the preceding group are considered furthers 

File 1266-13-253.12, Charles D. McCormiek. 8.11 acres 
2 miles south of Coral Gables in Section 35, Township 
55 South, Range 40 East. 
I 
File 1269-13-253.12, Estate of Charles Deering. 45.91 acres 
within closed bulkhead line of Chicken Key in Section 25-55-40 
and Section 30-55-41. 

File 1279-13-253.12, James L. Pax son and Amelia P. Farquhar. 
423.18 acres at Black Point. 

File 1266-13-253.12, Estate of Charles Deering . 7 3.35 
acres. 

The Trustees recognised that County permit was required for filling 
but felt that it was inconsistent to sell submerged land to upland 
proprietors and at the same time agree with the county to refuse to 
allow filling, and that if the county was uncertain that the land 
ought to be filled the question arose as to whether the bulkhead 
line was useful or should be reviewed by the county. The county 
had withdrawn objections to sales yet the Trustees had received many 
strong protests to any sale or development in Biscayne Bay. 

Governor Bryant suggested that the county be asked for delineation 
of exactly what they wanted, as it appeared that the county was 
putting the public on notice that after purchase there was no 
assurance of getting a fill permit. This would affect the assigning 
of a fair market value for the land. Hr. Green commented that 
these applicants knew they had to clear with the local unit before 
filling and he was willing to make sales on that basis. Mr. Larson 
said the applicants were entitled to an answer from the Trustees and 
that some of the areas applied for were rather large. 

Motion was made by Mr. Larson, seconded and unanimously adopted, that 
Metropolitan Dade County be asked to review the bulkhead line adja- 
cent to the west shore of Biscayne Bay as applicable to the above 
listed applications pending before the Trustee a. 



ST. LUCIE COUMTlf - Bulkhead Line and Application to Purchase. 
Presented for formal approval was the bulkhead line for Hetties 
Island in Sections 2 and 3, Township 37 South, Range 41 East, adopted 
by the Board of County Commissioners of St. Lucie County on June 25, 
1963, being a modification of the line fixed by the county on Febru- 
ary 19, 1963. On May 7 the Trustees referred the Februsry 19th 
line back to the county with suggestion that the 100-foot connection 
to the mainland be eliminated and the encompassed area reduced con- 
sistent with a proposed land exchange whereby lands easterly of the 
island might be granted to applicants, Gene T. Dyer and wife, for 
reconveyance of an equivalent area purchased in 1956. Owners agreed 
to the exchange and the county submitted the bulkhead line to fit 
the area to be modified by the exchange. 



-251- 7-9-63 



Pile Ho. 1351-56-253.12. By the exchange the record owners. Gene T. 
Dyer and wife, would re convey the West 23.43 acres of a 50-acre sub- 
merged tract purchased in 1956 {Trustees' Seed Ho. 21272) in exchange 
for 23.43 acres in Sections 2 and 3 of Township 37 South, Range 41 
East, between Hetties Island and the mainland. Also, the Staff 
recommended grant of access road perpetual easement or dedication 
covering the 100-foot strip connecting the Hetties Island area with 
the mainland, the grant to contain provision that the easement or 
dedication would enure to the county, state or federal government 
as the interest of either in the access road might develop. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees formally approved the bulk- 
head line adopted by St. Lucie County on June 25, 1963, granted 
perpetual easement for the access road as recommended, and approved 
the land exchange subject to advertisement for objections only with 
applicanta to pay advertising costs.

CADE COUHTY - The City Commission of Miami by Resolution Ho. 33608 
adopted Hay 15, 1963, requested grant of the submerged lands between 
the established bulkhead line and the end of Kirk Street, as same 
existed and was platted in the subdivision "New Biscayne Amended" 
in Plat Book "B" at page 16, for the extension of Kirk Street sub- 
ject to drainage easement granted by the Trustees to the State 
Road Department. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees dedicated the land requested 
for public street purposes under supervision and control of the City 
of Miami, subject to the drainage easement. ^ 



DADE COUNTY - OesRocher Sand Company applied for two-year extension 
of Sand Lease Ho. 1569 expiring July 15, 1963, covering offshore 
areas near Terminal Island west of Pisher Island and southeast of 
Cape Plorida. The non-exclusive lease, with royalty of 15^ per 
cubic yard, $25 monthly minimum, $3000 surety bond and provision 
allowing Trustees to cancel after 90-day notice, was audited in 
September 1962 and the account was in good standing. 

Upon motion adopted without objection, the Trustees authorized two- 
year extension of the lease on the same terms and conditions. 



PUTNAM COUNTY - The City of Palatka recently sought assistance 
or cooperation of the Trustees toward removal of a boat house and 
dock in the St. Johns River at the foot of Laurel Street, reported 
to have been built by one Gillespie several years ago and later 
transferred to the late E. H. Bainbridge. Notice was issued to the 
Beinbridge Estate to show cause why the structure should not be 
removed. Thomas B. Dowda, on behalf of Mr. Gillespie, advised that 
the structure was erected about 1927-1928 under agreement with the 
city and county and he believed Mr. Gillespie still owned the boat 
house and appeared to have rights under his agreement with the 
city since all legal and other necessary arrangements were made 
for the installation. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees referred the matter of 
removal back to the City of Palatka in view of the apparent authori- 
sation long prior to requirement of state permits. 



7-9-63 -252- 



DADE COUNTY - Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorized 
refund of $10.00 to Herman I. Breton, attorney in Miami, being 
the amount overpaid in connection with request for release of canal 
reservations contained in Trustees* Deed No. 16160. 



TRUSTEES ' FUMDE - The Director called attention to Opinion So. 
063-67 of the Attorney General which construed Chapter 63-40 Laws 
of Florida, Acts of 1963, as placing in the Board of Conservation's 
Division of Beaches and Shores the responsibility for processing 
state permits for groins, jetties, breakwaters and other coastal 
structures in the intra-coastal waters. Procedure was proposed by 
the Board of Conservation, including proposal that Trustees retain 
processing fees submitted with applications and transfer to the 
Board of Conservation an annual sum of $12,000 beginning July 1, 
for which no provision was made in the Trustees' budget nor provi- 
sion made in Chapter 63-40. Under advice of the Attorney General 
the Division of Beaches and Shores would be expected to handle all 
processing, presumably including making its own regulations and 
requirement of application fees. The fees heretofore collected on 
applications since passage of the new law May 14 were subject to 
disposition by the Trustees, having been required pending determina- 
tion by the Attorney General concerning responsibility under the 
existing law and the new law, which did not appear to repeal the 
existing law. 

Director of the Board of Conservation, Senator Randolph Hodges, in 
making request for $12,000 from the Trustees, stated that fees set 
out by the Board of Conservation would come to the Trustees, that 
he would try to negotiate for more services with the Coastal Engineer- 
ing Laboratory, some services of which would be available to the 
Trustees, also. The Trustees' Director suggested that under the 
Attorney General's finding the Board of Conservation could fix and 
collect its own fees. 

The Trustees agreed to advance $12,000 to the Board of Conservation 
for work of the Division of Beaches and Shores, reserving decision 
as to source or manner of allocation from Trustees' funds until 
negotiation of contract with Coastal Engineering Laboratory by the 
Conservation Director and determination of the extent that services 
were provided which the Trustees had been paying for out of the 
operating budget, and Mr. Ferguson and Senator Hodges were requested 
to work our further details for consideration by the Trustees. 



OUTDOOR RECREATIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM - At the request of Governor 
Bryant, the Trustees* Engineer with the use of a number of charts 
reviewed the first organizational steps to implement the extensive 
new Outdoor Recreational Development program authorized by the 1963 
Legislature. He explained that the Outdoor Recreational Develop- 
ment Council composed of the Governor and the Cabinet would direct 
the work under the program and that to serve on the Outdoor 
Recreational Development Committee, composed of representatives from 
various agencies, there should be designated a member of the Trustees. 

Upon motion by Comptroller Green, seconded and unanimously adopted, 
the Trustees designated Commissioner Doyle Conner as representative 
of the Trustees of Internal Improvement Fund on the Outdoor Recrea- 
tional Development Committee. 



SUBJECTS UNDER CHAPTER 18296

INDIAN RIVER COUWTY - File Bo. 1233-31-253.12. Bulkhead Line 

and Application. 



Presented for formal approval was the amended bulkhead line estab- 
lished by the City Council of the City of Vero Beach by Ordinance 
Ho. 913 dated November 20, 1962. The Trustees examined the map 
submitted which showed the line located in the Indian River in 
Section 5, Township 33 South, Range 40 Bast, encompassing a parcel 
of approximately one- fourth acre. 

Also, offer of the appraised value of $250.00 (for the parcel) was

-255- 7-16-63 



DACE COUNTY - Representing the City of Miami Beach, Mr. Ben Shepard 
was present in connection with a project to widen another portion of 
Collins Avenue from 70 feet to 130 feet, being a continuation of a 
widening project previously accomplished for which the Trustees con- 
veyed a atrip of submerged land in Indian Creek. Mr. Shepard showed 
map of the area from approximately opposite 55th to 60th Streets, 
3100 feet, and requested an expression from the Trustees before the 
city proceeded with the great expenditure of funds and negotiations 
which the project would require. Whereas the previous widening had 
involved narrow strips of land unsuitable for atructures between 
right of way of Collins Avenue and Indian Creek, in this ease the 
strip of land consisted of lota 150 to 250 feet in depth some of 
which were occupied by residences. As in the past the city planned 
to acquire, fill and bulkhead submerged land and exchange with pri- 
vate owners for the land needed for the road, and would reimburse 
owners for damage to any structures. Mr. Shepard's apprehension 
and desire for tentative approval was caused, he said, by the fact 
that previously the Trustees had required inserted in the conveyances 
a provision that no structures could be erected on the parcels which 
provision could not be required here because of the greater width 
of the parcels west of the road. 

The members asked about disposition of the abandoned right of way, 
access for owners, traffic conditions, and whether the proposed 
road alignment could be shifted so as to take less submerged Indian 
Creek land. It was recognized that an element of necessity existed 
end the Governor said that ultimately the Board should agree on 
something to sssist the City of Miami Beach, however study by the 
Trustees' Staff and advice of the State Road Department appeared 
desirable. 

Upon motion by Comptroller Green, aeconded and adopted, the mat- 
ter was referred to the Staff and the State Road Department for 
recommendations . 



IHDIAM RIVER COUHTY - Resolution adopted July 3, 1963 by the Board 
of County Commissioners of Indian River County requested Trustees in 
order to preserve the Pelican Island Wildlife Refuge "to dedicate 
in perpetuity to the people of Indian River County, Florida, and to 
the Board of County Commissioners... a body of lsnd and water con- 
taining 4760 acres, more or less" which included almost all open 
water, all mangrove islands and United States spoil easements east 
of the Intra coastal Waterway from a point about 600 feet north of 
Wabaaso Island northerly over 34,000 feet, west of the established 
bulkhead line. The county request was for dedication subject to 
an outstanding lease of part of the area to Florida Audubon Society 
and the area generally corresponded to a plan circulated by II, 5. 
Pish and Wildlife Service and Florida Audubon Society in behalf of 
which numerous letters were received. 

After study by the staff and review by the Attorney General, it was 
not recommended that vast open public water areas be included in a 
restrictive dedication. Staff did recommend dedication of the seven 
islands shown in red on U. S. Geological Survey Quadrangle Map, 
the northernmost being at Turtle Pen Slough and the southernmost 
being Preachers Island, together with the open water areas or 
sloughs in the largest island of the group. Reservation of several 
narrow passages for small boats was desirable. The dedication would 
respect riparian rights of upland owners as delimited by the county's 
established bulkhead line and would permit maintenance of boating 
along the bulkhead line. Small mangrove patches in Spratt Creek and 
Eaat Channel were not included in the recommended dedication area 
since removal of portions might be necessary to preserve a useful 
channel between the upland and areas proposed for dedication. 



7-16-63 -256- 



The Staff made recomnendstiona as to administration of the dedica- 
tion and recosanended that the areas be described by reference to 
photo reproduction of the map to be incorporated in the instrument 
of dedication. Engineer Kidd reported on his examination and the 
Board was shown pictures and the quadrangle map of the entire area 
including Pelican Island which did not exceed 10 acres and was the 
nation's oldest bird refuge, dedicated in 1903 by President Theo- 
dore Roosevelt, Members of the County Commission had indicated 
that survey and legal description of the dedication area would be 
furnished to the Trustees. 

Upon motion by Comptroller Green, seconded by Mr. Larson and adopted, 
the Trustees accepted the Staff recommendations for perpetual dedi- 
cation of an estimated 422. 56 acres comprising the seven islands, 
the northernmost being at Turtle Pen Slough and the southernmost 
being Preachers Island, together with the open water areas or 
sloughs in the largest island of the group, under supervision of 
the Board of County Commissioners with authority for said Board to 
arrange for such assistance by state agencies as night be desirable 
and practicable in administering the dedication for wildlife refuge 
purposes and with the right for the county to enter into agreements, 
approved by the Trustees, for administration on a year-to-year basis 
by the U. S. Fish and wildlife Service and/or Florida Audubon 
Society or other conservation agencies or organizations, the dedica- 
tion to be subject to the current lease to Florida Audubon Society 
which would expire November 2, 1969. 



FIKELLAS COUMTY - Pile No. 1356-52-253.12. The City of Tarpon 
Springs requested dedication of a parcel of submerged land adjacent 
to city-owned upland in Section 10, Township 27 South, Range IS 
East, containing 106.4 acres in St. Joseph Sound to be improved and 
used for public recreational and beach purposes. It was noted on 
the map that the parcel extended 6500 feat in very shallow water 
and would facilitate access to the Intracoastal Waterway. 

Upon motion adopted without objection, the Trustees authorized 
dedication of the parcel requested by the City of Tarpon Springs for 
public recreational purposes. 



LEASES 



DADE COUNTY - Trustees of Internal Improvement Fund and 
State Board of Education. 

Mr. Williams, Land Agent, discussed with members of the State Board 
of Education and those members of the Cabinet constituting the 
Trustees of the Internal Improvement Fund the application of Mr. 
Wendell L. Roberts for a joint State Drilling Lease for oil and gas 
covering the interests of the two boards on Dade County. The lands 
involved are described as follows:

Township 54 South, Range 36 East (reserved 
•l interest) West 3/4 of Section 16 240 

Total Oil Acres .... 24,830 

The foregoing are unsurveyed lands and are subject to public ease- 
ment • (roads, levees, etc). 

It was pointed out that the applicant was requesting a joint lease 
for a primary tern of 10 years and agrees to commence operations 
to drill the first well within the first 18 months of the lease 
with an additional well to be drilled during each subsequent 2h 
year period of the lease. Further, the applicant would agree to 
drill each well to a depth of 11,300 feet unless production should 
be encountered at a lesser depth. The offer of annual rental of 
the above described lands was made at 25 cents per acre (oil acre). 
Mr. Williams reported that the applicant had negotiated lease of 
the privately owned petroleum interest in Section 16, Township 54 
South, Range 35 East. 

Governor Bryant expressed some concern over the fact that the 
number of acres involved in this transaction was Mora than that 
covered by a policy recently adopted by the board involving 
certain restrictions. Mr. Larson also stated that ten years seemed 
to be too long a period of time for the lease as requested by Mr. 
Roberts. However, both Governor Bryant and Mr. Larson agreed that 
they would be willing to consider this transaction with the under- 
standing that it would be approved by Attorney General Ervin upon 
hia return. 

Pursuant to the recommendation, therefore, of Mr. Williams, motion 
was made, duly seconded, and unanimously carried that the appli- 
cation in all of its aspects be approved by the State Board of 
Education subject to the approval of the Attorney General. Such 
action would also govern the decision of the Board of Trustees of 
the Internal Improvement Fund. 



ST. JOmiS COUHTY - Amendments were proposed for incorporation in 
formal agreement supplemental to State Leases Bos. 1719, 1720, 1721 
and 1722 held by James Appell covering contiguous marsh areas in 
Section 22, Township 5 South, Range 29 East, aggregating about 205 
acres fronting on Deep Creek and the Intracoastal waterway. Leasee 
during the past four years developed portions for family- type 
recreational uses but had been hampered by problem* of access, 
boundary disputes, weather damage and inability to sublease small 
areas aa cottage sites. Lessee reported persons and organizations 
desired to sublease small areas but desired assurance that their 
sublease* could be continued in event the overall leaae was termina- 
ted. The Appell leases, by their terms, would expire in 1987 and 
the leased area being large, small parcels might be subleased and 
improved without depleting the area as a recreation center. In 
order to promote development the Staff proposed amendment where- 
undert 



7-16-63 -258- 



1. Lessee would have a suitable area staked and 
platted in small lots with access roads, with 
measurements referenced to an established land- 
mark so no confusion might result as to the limits 
of parcels subleased, with map filed with the 
affected leas*. 

3. Leasee would be required to file with Trustees 
copy of each sublease in form approved by Trustees 
Staff, with name and address of the sublessee. 

3. In event Trustees' lease of the area so subleased 
should for any reason be terminated prior to its 
expiration date, holder of any sublease would be 
entitled to receive from the Trustees a lease of 
the subleased parcel for the unexpired term of the 
terminated prime lease. Processing fee of 5 25 was 
recommended, with such small lot rental to be uni- 
form with that required in the subleased, 

4. Any sublessee desiring to transfer his parcel 
would be allowed to do so provided copy of assign- 
ment of sublease was filed with Trustees with signed, 
notarized acceptance by the assignee of covenants 
and provisions of the sublease. 

Also, request wee stade for an additional 30- day extension of time 
for payment of rentals due January 16 on the Appall leasee. 

Upon motion by Treasurer Larson, adopted without objection, the 
Trustees granted an additional 30 days for making payment of 
rentals on State Leases 1719, 1720, 1721 and 17 22 with requirement 
of penalty intereet of X%t also the Trustees authorized the above 
described amendment to be incorporated in formal agreement supple- 
mental to said leases. 



MISCELLANEOUS 



LEE COUBTY - V. L. Buchanan and Bowen G. Suhr made application to 
remove a limited amount of beach material at their Gulf frontages 
on Sanibel Island to use for improving access connection to a new 
road being provided by the county, to which they now had access 
only along the beach. The Coastal Engineering Laboratory, while not 
favoring removal of beach material, advised that the small quantity 
proposed should cause no harm. Sale of not more than 1000 cubic 
yards was suggested at the standard rate subject to agreement that 
removal would be dona in such manner as to leave no holes. 

Engineer William R. Kidd pointed out that since the state was 
besieged in some areas for emergency erosion control, removal of 
material should be avoided, and that on Sanibel Island there were 
pita from which material could be secured. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees denied the application. 



LEOB COUHTY - Presented for consideration of the Trustees was a 
resolution which was also presented earlier on this date to the 
Cabinet, from the north Tallahassee Borne Owners Association composed 
of resident property owners of Leon County protesting the route of 
Interstate Highway Mo. 10 as proposed through the area immediately 
north of Tallahassee and across Lake Jackson, bottoms of which were 



-259- 7-16-63 



sovereignty lands of the State of Florida. The group felt that the 
construction of an interstate highway through Lake Jackson would 
seriously damage the outdoor recreational value* of the lake and 
would jeopardize the development of the stost beautiful residential 
area in Tallahassee. 

The Trustees directed that the resolution be filed. 



PALM BEACH COUHTY - file So. 1355-50-253.129. Staff recommended 
issuance of disclaimer, in form provided by the Attorney General 
for disclaimers under Section 253.129 Florida Statutes, to Joseph 
F. Edwards covering a parcel of land in Jupiter Inlet in Section 31, 
Township 40 South, Range 43 East, Palm Beach County, which was 
filled under Department of Army Permit 800.61 (6930) dated 1952. 
The Trustees had waived objections to the filling as an emergency 
measure. The office of the Attorney General had recognized passage 
of the bulkhead law on June 11, 1957 was not retroactive and did 
not extinguish the right to fill during permit term. Under Section 
253.129 title to land filled prior to said date (in Palm Beach and 
Dade Counties) was confirmed and the Trustees were required to issue 
a disclaimer to the owner. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, duly adopted, the Trustees authorized 
issuance of the disclaimer for SI 0.00 handling charge. 



PINELLAS COUNTY - Without objection, the Trustees authorized 
issuance of State Permits to (1) Bank Building & Equipment Corpora- 
tion of America for marina in Boca Ciega Bay at applicant's upland 
in Treasure Island, and (2) to A. B. Darling for commercial dock 
in Clearwater Harbor at applicant's land in Yacht Basin Subdivision, 
Clearwater Beach, permits for each having been granted by Pinellas 
County Hater and Navigation Control Authority and 5100.00 processing 
fee paid to Trustees by each applicant. 



TRUSTEES' MINUTES - Dade County Lands. Without objection, the 
Trustees approved addition of the following information shown in 
quotes to the Trustees' minutes of June 18, 1963 with reference to 
execution of consent by the Trustees and the Board of Education for 
lease with Aero- jet-General Corporation for a Wildlife Management 
Area "of approximately 40,000 acres" and Wildlife Refuge Area "of 
approximately 27,000 acres" which included lands in Lease Option 
"Ho, 1640-1640S." 



TRUSTEES' FUMDB Attention was called to the fact that the Stat* 
of Florida acting through the Trustees had withdrawn its appli- 
cation to use the deactivated Green Cove Springs Naval Base 
property in Clay County, for which the Trustees on May 7, 1963 ad- 
vanced $62,140.00 as deposit for purchase from General Services 
Administration. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Board directed that steps be taken 
to have the money reimbursed to the Trustees. 



TRUSTEES' OFFICE - Authorization for adjustment of the budget was 
requested with reference to five members of the office staff 
receiving salaries under a split payroll for whom S% increase was 
provided by the Trustees ' budget only with reference to the salary 
paid by the Trustees. Under the 1959 reorganization of the Depart- 
it of Agriculture, the Land Office and the Field Bote Division 



7-16-63 -260- 



were not included and a bill was passed to merge these branches 
with the Trustees but failed by reason of lack of a Constitutional 
Amendment. The 1963 Legislature passed a similar bill with Joint 
Resolution for the Constitutional Amendment which will be subject 
to vote in 1964. The work of the five employees now being under 
direction of and for the Trustees, inclusion of increase by the 
Department of Agriculture was not feasible and it appeared that 
provision should have been made in the Trustees' budget for 5% 
increase of the combined salaries as of June 30, 1963, adjustment 
for which would amount to $745. 25 for the year. 

Upon motion by Comptroller Green, duly adopted, the Trustees authorised 
adjustment of the office budget to provide 5* increase of the 
bined salaries as of June 30, 1963 of the five employees on the 
split payroll. 



TRUSTEES' OFFICE - Supplies. Without objection, the Trustees 
approved purchase of miscellaneous drafting equipment needed for 
the Trustees' office, totsl coat not to exceed ¥65.00 net.

Of the bulkhead line which might affect projection of lines at right

line subsequently established as the Oade County bulkhead line. 
Staff was unable to define the area filled prior to June 11, 19S7,

mal permission or approval for filling to the V. 6. Pierhead-bulk- 
head line which was subsequently established as the Dade County

pocket. The 1.9 acre parcel was riparian to upland acquired by

the original layout, advertisement of the two contiguous parcels 
was recommended in order that sale might conform to the street 
extension adjacent to the 1.9 acre parcel. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees approved the application 
subject to advertisement for objections only.

Trustees formally approved the fill permit granted by the City of

COLLIER COUNTY - 0. E. Carroll, on behalf of Naples Yacht Club 
and B. w. Morris, requested rehearing on proposed revision of 
bulkhead line in Naples Bay to which the Trustees heard objections 
on January 8 and deferred action for investigation and appraisal 
of the objections and for a 50- foot cutback on the east to which 
proponents agreed. On Hay 7 Engineer William R. Kidd reported 
that objections by owner of Lot 13, Block 4, Naples, were valid 
and rehearing was denied pending report of efforts to work out 
a compromise. However, Mr. Carroll advised that proponents were 
unable to work out agreeable compromise with the owner of Lot 13 
and that the city had previously worked out a compromise in agreeing 
to the 50- foot cutback on the east and "recessing the southerly 
boundary of the bulkhead line in 30 feet". The Director advised 
that the recessing of 30 feet on the southerly unit might have 
been a compromise at the local level in fixing the proposed 
revision, which was a proposal to move the bulkhead line 100 feet 
further offshore. 

Mr. Kidd expressed the opinion that the proposed expansion would 
damage the protectant whose property would suffer from loss of view 
and bringing a semi-commercial enterprise nearer to his residence.

Trustees authorized issuance of instrument of dedication to the 
Board of County Commissioners of Lee County covering two areas 
aggregating 1096 acres for public purposes and issuance of deeds 
of conveyance on an exchange basis to four private interests. No

the McDonald, Dinkel-French and Collier interests, the deed clause 
reserving oil and minerals was inadvertently included. The deeda 
to McDonald and Dinkel-French were returned unrecorded and new 
corrected instruments were prepared, but the Collier deed was 
recorded. 

without objection, the Trustees authorized issuance of corrective 
deed to the Collier Development Corporation showing therein the

was presented to the Trustees on Hay 21, 1963, discussed in detail 
with the staff of the Trustees and the Department of Conservation 
and reviewed by the Coastal Engineering Laboratory of the University 
of Florida. The Town delayed initiation of the project pending 
disposition of its request for state financial assistance, but 
desired to get work under way in order to complete prior to the 
approaching storm season. 



-269- 7-30-63

authorised, with waiver of the bond requirement, but subject to the 
willingness of the Town to assume full responsibility for any 
damage* ,

supervisor of Slavia Drainage District for a three-year term as 
recommended. 



TRUSTEES' POLICY - Offshore Leases. On Kay 14, 1963, the Trustees 
deferred decision on proposed leasing for oil and minerals on certain 
sovereignty submerged lands in the Gulf of Mexico, Hast Florida, 
pending further exploration of the request from the United States 
for withdrawals of extensive areas on account of military operations 
and for the Defense Department to define requirements before any 
deciaion was made as to leasing all or part of the area which had 
been advertised for coeipetitive bids. 

Mr. Robert whittet of the office of the Secretary of Defense, Washing- 
ton, and representatives of the Bevy and Air Force, conferred with 
representatives of the Trustees and Attorney General and were pre- 
sent on this date. Letters of Congressman Bob Sixes urged that no 
leasee be granted since, in hie judgment, drilling operations off- 
shore would adversely affect tourism, fishing and the military instal- 
lations . 

A delegation was preaent representing the United States and statements 
were made, partly in closed session, by Mr. Whittet, Col. John H. 
Hobaugh of Zglin AFB Proving Ground Center, John P. Betak of U. S. 
Bavy, Fensaeola, and Lt. Cdr. Richard P. Akerman, U. S. Bavy,

WHEREAS, the Trustees received objections to the leasing of 
thie srea for oil exploration and drilling purpose* shortly before 
the opening of esid bide from the U. S. Department of Defease and 
upon receipt of these objections the Trustees agreed to defer action 
on this proposed lease pending receipt of information from the 
Department of Defense in substantiation of the conclusion that the

lease would constitute sn intolerable interference with the defense 
and ressarch activities being conducted by the Department of Defense 
installations Iocs ted within the contemplated lease arear and 



the authorized representatives of the Department of 
Defense made a presentation to the Trustees at Meeting of July 30, 
1963, explaining in detail the nature of the defense and research 
activities being conducted by their installations in the said con- 
templated lease area at Pensacola, Eglin Field, Panama City and 
Tyndall Field, and 

WHEREAS, based upon the information submitted in this presenta- 
tion by the authorized representatives of the Department of Defense, 
the Trustees conclude that they are In substantial agreement with 
the recooroe neat ions of the Department of Defense with respect to 
the areas which should be excluded from the ssld ares contemplated 
for lease, also those portions of the ares originally offered for 
lease which would be available for lease, 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Trustees that they hereby 
agree to exclude and withdraw from the proposed lesse sll areas in 
which drilling activities and exploration operations authorised 
under the terms of such proposed lease would conflict with and unduly 
interfere with the research and defense actlvitiis of the affected 
defense establishment, which areas were defined on s map submitted 
at the meeting of July 30, 1963. 

BE XT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Trustees adopt as a policy 
with respect to future negotiations for oil, gss, sulphur, salt and

on which bids or other offers ere to be solicited will 

be submitted to the Assistant Secretary of Defense,

2. Areas covered by leasing maps on which the Assistant 
Secretary of Defense, (Installations and Logistics), 

or his authorised designee, has indies ted that the execu- 
tion of s leass would be inconsistent with the National 
Security, provided such finding appears to be justified 
and proper in the judgment of the Trustees, will be with- 
held from solicitation.

Departments of Defense Agencies and NASA conducting opera- 
tions in or in connection with the territorial waters 

of the State of Florida, provided such approval and con- 
currence by the District Engineer, Department of the Army 
is not withheld except upon a finding based upon a proper 
showing that the operations to be conducted by such a permit 
would constitute an intolerable interference with the 
activities of any affected defense installation. 

4. Leases of state controlled coastal submerged land areas 
of the State of Florida which are approved for leasing by 

the Trustees will contain a clause consisting of substantially 
the following language!

on the lease areas of state controlled offshore 
submerged lands can Impede tactical military 
operations, hereby recognizes and agrees that the 
United States reserves and has the right to 
temporarily suspend operations of the lessee under 
this lease (if such action is deemed necessary) 
in the interest of National Security, Such 
temporary suspension of operations will come into 
effect upon the order of the cognizant District 
Engineer, when determined by the said District 
Engineer, or higher authority, that National 
Security interests necessitates such action."

requested to conduct a continuing study end review of all sub- 
merged sovereignty areas which have been excluded and withdrawn 
from state oil, gas, sulphur, salt and other brines leases by the 
Trustees in response to specific request of the Department of

veyance, certain contractual natters relating to the transfer of 
title should be resolved before delivery of the deed. Pursuant to 
examination of the matter by the office of the Attorney General, it 
was recommended that payment be accepted from the Lincoln firm under

priated by the 1963 Legislature from Trustees' funds to the World's

ment Commission for the balance of $250,000 which was not available 
in uncommitted Trustees' funds. The amount of $100,000 could be

instructed to contact Mr. E. R. Roland, Director of the State Board 
of Administration, for possible arrangement for purchase of Trustees '

channel. Public hearing was conducted in Miami on June 18 and 19 by 
Mr. Robert C. Parker on behalf of the Trustees and transcripts were

differences by swans of a conference between representatives of the 
three parties - City of Xslandia, Cade County and the Seadade firm -

agreement. It was recognized that it was a matter with many public

PINELLAS COUNTY - Staff recommended approval, subject to concurrence 
of the City of Dunedin, of construction plan for Section "A" of the 
Honeymoon Island development in which the general layout and ratio 
of land mass to water area was similar to the Bartholomew plan 
approved by the Trustees July 8, 1959, but the 1959 plan included 
golf courses not included in the new plan. The City of Dunedin, by 
Resolution No. 895 unanimously adopted August 13, 1962, proposed 
that no golf course areas be reserved on Honeymoon Island since the 
Professional Golfers Association was moving from Dunedin, the eighteen- 
hole city course was leased as a semi-public facility and an eighteen- 
hole-par-three course was being constructed adjacent to the city 
course. The Director assured the Boaid that the new plan for Section

totalling 24,830 oil acres for exploration and recovery of oil, gaa, 
sulphur, salt and/or other brines, at annual rental of 254 per acre 
lncreeaing 5% per year after the first two years, with primary

and one well each 2% years thereafter, all wells to 11,300 feet unless 
production is had at lesser depth. Mo tic* required sealed bids of 
cash consideration to he opened at joint meeting of the two Boards

-283- 8-27-63 



lessee might, at any time, surrender the lease as to any or all of 
the leased area by filling a release for record in the county and 
thereby become relieved of all obligations as to the released 
acreage. Attorney General Ervin agreed and said that while it 
would have been better to make the change before the offering, 
suggestions had been made that in the oil leasing process an effort 
should be made to increase exploration and production and allowing 
leasee to surrender acreage did not appear desirable. 

The one sealed bid received, from Wendell L. Roberta, offered 
$12,500.00 as cash consideration and rental for the first year. 
When asked about the proposed change in the lease form Mr. Roberts 

indicated willingness to negotiate the point. 

Upon motion by Attorney General Ervin, unanimously adopted, the 
Trustees and the State Board of Education accepted the bid of Mr. 
Roberts for state drilling lease covering the advertised lands of 
both Boards, subject to negotiation on the change in the lease form.

a bridge approach which might damage the view to travelers along 
the causeway. The map was examined and Mr, Weigel said that in 
making his appraisal he noted fills and a marina and other develop- 
ment along the east side of the road opposite the Cipriani applica- 
tion parcel. D. Frank Smoak, representing the applicant, said the 
parcel was in an area of development and extended out a maximum of 
87 feet - not out to the bulkhead line.

wee shown at 57.4 elevation and the map would indicate a riae toward 
the shore of about 6 feet but that was not apparent from the aerial 
photo on file. The Director felt that the lake margin needed further 
study since extenaive dredging might be objectionable to the community. 
Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission inspected and reported 
that on the basis of all of the proposed development being done 
above the 57.4 elevation there would be no detrimental affect on fiah 
reaourcea. 



-287- S- 27-63 



Petition signed by John Marshall Green and twenty- three Other property 
owners adjacent or in the vicinity of the land waived objection and 
endorsed the development. Mr. H. W. Lively was present as a pro- 
ponent. Mr. Green and Mr. Love, representing proponents and opponents 
respectively, were heard by the Trustees. Reduction of the appli- 
cation area and improving access from applicant's upland to the lake 
were suggested, and the Governor asked Mr. Love to work with the 
Trustees' Engineer to plan an agreeable solution. 

The Trustees directed Mr. Kidd to review the matter and the 
engineering factors involved and to give the Board a report on the 
proposed development with his recommendation for or against, and 
if favorable, just how improvement of the marginal areas slight be 
planned.

beach purposes. $50.00 application fee was paid by the city. No 
objection waa filed in response to notice published in the Leader, 
Tarpon Springs, Florida. Pinellas County Water and Navigation Con- 
trol Authority "approved the purchase, as a separate item, not to 
establish a policy for the Authority to approve these purchases 
but purely for the potential public benefit to the City of Tarpon 
Springs. . . " 

Upon motion unanimously adopted, the Trustees confirmed dedication 
to the City of Tarpon Springs for public purposes. 



ST. LUCIE COUNTY - File No. 1351-56-253. 12. On July 9 the Trustees 
approved, subject to advertisement, a land exchange by which the 
record owners, Gene T. Oyer and wife, would reconvey the West 23.43 
acres of a 50-acre submerged tract purchased in 1956 (Trustees 
Deed No. 21272} for 23.43 acres in Sections 2 and 3, Township 37 
South, Range 41 East, between Nettles Island and the mainland, 
St. Lucie County. The Board also approved perpetual easement for 
access road covering 100- foot strip connecting the Nettles Island 
area with the mainland, the grant to contain provision that the 
easement or dedication would enure to the county, state or federal 
government as the interest of either in the accesa road might 
develop. The parcel of submerged land to be exchanged was advertised 
for objections only in the News Tribune of Fort Pierce, Florida, proof 
of publication waa filed, and no protest was received as to the land 
exchange . 

Ralph H. Hiers, adjacent upland owner, filed objection to causeway 
and low bridge which he charged would obstruct flow of water and 
interfere with sales of his lands to boat owners. Applicant advised 
that those questions were raised by the Board of County Commissioners 
at the bulkhead hearings and resolved by the filing of plana with 
the county. Copy of the plana waa filed with the Trustees and the 
Director pointed out that any causeway and bridge installation would 
have to aatlsfy navigation requirements of the U. 5. Corps of 
Engineera. The Trustees discussed maintenance of the causeway bridge 
to allow boat clearance and County Attorney Ralph B. Wilson said 
that the boat clearance appeared adequate but maintenance had not 
been considered by the county at the hearing. Mr. Kidd suggested 
that as part of the easement agreement, the Trustees might require 
a bond to provide for maintenance. 

Upon motion by Kr. Ervin, duly adopted, the Trustees confirmed the 
land exchange and granted the easement subject to conditions for 
access and clearance being worked out by Mr. Kidd.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY - The Board of County Commissioners of St. Lucie 
County by Resolution adopted May 14, 1963 at request of the Indian 
River Nature Conservancy Committee, requested dedication or conveyance 
of a mangrove area known as Jack Island to Florida State Park 
Service, apparently to be kept in the natural state. The request 
was endorsed by the City of Fort Pierce Resolution No. 2361 adopted 
May 13, 1963. The Florida Board of Parks and Historic Memorials on 
June IS, 1961 authorized Or. Banna and the Perk Board Director 
"at their discretion and in behalf of the Board" to request the 
Trustees to deed the Jack Island property to the Park Board "for 
development as a State Park." 

The mangrove peninsula commonly referred to as an island aggregated 
approximately 386.41 acres adjacent to an area in private owner- 
ship of record (land not reconveyed in a transaction whereunder 
the Trustees sold and recovered less area than was conveyed) , Lack 
of survey and accurate description, and the possibility that private 
riparian rights were affected, had delayed presentation. No bulk- 
heed lines were established. The Attorney General by letter dated 
May 29, 1963 to Fred Harden had suggested that if procurement of 
riparian releases was impracticable, consideration might be given 
to dedication subject to riparian interests. 

Honorable John M. Mccarty urged approval of the dedication. Present 
on behalf of the the dedication were Representative Prank Fee, 
Mrs. Marjorie B. Silver, Member of the County Commission, and County 
Attorney Ralph B. Wilson. 

Motion was made by Attorney General Ervin, and adopted unanimously, 
that Jack Island and the adjecent submerged area, comprising approxi- 
mately 624 acres for which legal description should be furnished, 
be dedicated to the Florida State Park Service subject to out- 
standing riparian rights, if any.

that the predecessor in title to the United States did not own the 
land. 

Upon motion by Comptroller Green, duly adopted, the Trustees concurred

MISCELLANEOUS 



ESCAMBIA, SANTA ROSA, OKALOOSA, WALTON, BAY AND GULF COUNTIES - 
Directive was requested concerning disposition of the bids for lease 
for oil, gas, sulphur, salt and other brines which were received 
and taken under advisement on Hay 14, 1963 pending conferences 
with representatives of the United States Department of Defense 
which had requested withdrawal from the offering of major portions 
of submerged lands in the Gulf of Mexico and inland water areas in 
West Florida. Trustees' policy resolution was formulated July 30, 
1963 and approved by the office of the Defense Counsel. Specific 
areas of inland and offshore submerged lands were given clearance 
for leasing as indicated. On May 14 California Oil Company sub- 
mitted bid on the whole area and La Rue -Smith Production Company 



-293- 9-3-63 



" 



offered bid for a portion of the lands offered for lease. The 
Trustees deferred action on the two bids and ordered the checks 
returned without prejudice. 

Motion was made by Attorney General Ervin, seconded and adopted, 
that the Trustees vacate the former offering and decline both bids 
as not applicable under the circumstances, that the lease form be 
revised to reduce the primary term and step up exploration and 
drilling requirements. 



BREVARD COUNTY - The City of Cocoa, Brevard County, by resolution 
adopted August 5, 1963 requested grant of a 500- foot square parcel 
of submerged land in the Banana River north of and adjacent to the 
right of way of the causeway of State Road 520, approximately 790 
feet offshore from the nearest private upland as site for water 
storage ground tanks, together with the right to dredge an adjacent 
area S00 feet square west of and adjacent to that site for fill 
material. The storage facility was needed in connection with supply 
of water by the city to the national Aeronautics and Space Administra- 
tion. The State Road Department had assured the city that every 
consideration would be given its request for access to the site upon 
procurement from the Trustees. Notices and maps were mailed to 
private riparian owners within 1000 feet of the proposed site, also 
the city. County Commissioner for the district, and to all parties 
who had filed objections in advance of receipt of the application. 

Objections received from R. P. McLarty and S. J. Foosaner, in front 
Of whose upland the site was situate about 730 feet offshore, 
involved a legal consideration since the proposed site was between 
their upland and the main channel but appeared to be riverward of 
a relief bridge channel which was between the upland and the site 
and which would be deepened and enlarged by the proposed dredging. 
Other objecting residents and owners included East Herri tt Island 
Home Owners Association, Mrs. w. T. Stewart, Mr. and Mrs. Richard 
Whitehead, Lloyd Killer and H. A. Weddell for the Izaak Walton 
League. The Trustees heard Mr. Weddell and Mrs. Whitehead express 
vigorous protests based on possible damage to residential property 
values, to an oyster lease area as well as conservation of natural 
resources. It was stated that the city could find another suitable 
site for the storage tanks. Telegram from County Commissioner 
George J. King, Jr., requested investigation of the possibility of 
moving the site 500 to 1000 feet further offshore. 

Mayor Anthony Nlnos, City Engineer Roy J. Amos and City Attorney 
Lloyd Campbell described the site as centrally located between 
Patrick Air Base and NOVA installations and discussed the engineer- 
ing requirements. Trustees were advised that city engineers were 
taking soundings and if found feasible the city would be willing to 
change its plan, if necessary, which would involve change in the 
bulkhead line. 

Attorney General Ervin expressed the opinion that bulkhead lines 
were fixed for the benefit of the public and took into considera- 
tion riparian rights but were not required to respect oyster 
leases or submerged land in private ownership acquired prior to 
the Bulkhead Act, that the Trustees tried to balance requests 
which related to public needs with private claims and sometimes 
granted requests subject to riparian rights. Me voiced doubt that 
the Trustees should let protests preclude projects of a public 
nature and pointed out that the city had offered to prevent the 
tank site from being unsightly. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, seconded by Mr. Ervin and duly adopted, 
the Trustees referred the matter to Engineer William R. Kidd to 
see if a solution could be worked out with the City of Cocoa to 



9-3-63 -294- 



protect the riparian right* of the objectors. 



B HOWARD COUNTY - Upon notion duly adopted, the Trustee* authorized 
dedication to the State Road Department of the south 66 feet of 
Sections 30, 29, 28 and 27, Township 50 South, Range 41 East, 
Newman's Survey, for right of way for State Road S-81S (SRD Sec. 
86513-2601), for which Central and Southern Florida Flood Control 
District had granted subordination of its drainage rights. 



LEE COUNTY - Staff recommended approval of fill permit issued to 
three different applicants by the City of Fort Myers by Amendment 
to Resolution No. 187 dated August 19, 1963, to fill three submerged 
areas of land in the Caloosahatchee River, title to which was vested 
in the City of Fort Myers by Special Act of the Legislature of 1915, 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees formally approved the fill 
permit granted by the City of Fort Myers. 



L EON AND GADSDEN COUNTIES - W. H. Brundydge, holder of Sand 
Lease No. 1628 expiring August 31, 1963, requested two-year extension. 
The lease covered that part of Ochlockonee River bottom in S£% of 
Section 13, Township 2 North, Range 2 West, at 15 cents per cubic 
yard, monthly minimum of $20.00, and $500.00 surety bond. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorized two-year extension 
of the lease upon the same terms and conditions. 



PASCO COUNTY - File No. 774-51-253.12. Staff re co— ended that Con- 
tract No. 22951 be declared forfeited and cancelled by reason of 
failure of the contract holder to pay the fifth installment of 
principal and interest due March 30, 1963 in the sun of $1,343.74 
plus penalty interest. The contract was issued March 30, 1961 to 
Gulf Land Enterprises, Inc., was assigned December 12, 1961 to V. M. 
Clark, Jr., present holder, and covered purchase of sovereignty 
land In Sections 32 and 33, Township 24 South, R. nge 16 East, in the 
Gulf of Mexico. No response was received from notices directed to 
Mr. Clark and the Attorney. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees accepted the recommendation 
and declared the contract forfeited and cancelled. 



PUTNAM COUNTY - Arvid P. Dahl applied for amendment to State Permit 
PD-434 to allow an addition to existing boathouse in front of his 
property at Georgetown on Lake George. Under existing policy the 
addition would normally be allowed without formal action since it 
was clearly riparian to applicant's upland, did not interfere with 
navigation nor extend into a zone properly riparian to another owner. 
In this instance, however, notice was issued to the adjacent owner, 
C. A. Jonas, who protested the issuance of permit for the pier con- 
structed by Mr. Dahl thirty- five feet from the Jonas property line. 
Mr. Jonas' own boathouse abutted extension of the property line with 
its opening against the zone riparian to the Dahl upland and the 
proposed Dahl boathouse extension would block the Jonas boathouse 
which, as heretofore used, was an infringement upon and appropriation 
of riparian rights running with the Dahl upland. In response to 
the notice, Mr, Jonas conferred with the Director August 27 and was 
assured that no reason was apparent why Mr. Dahl could not exercise 
riparian rights in the tone directly in front of his own upland 
and that since the Jonas upland had as much or more lake frontage, 



-295- 9-3-63 



it did not appear that Mr. Dahl should be required to provide Mr. 
Jonas with passage which interfered with Mr. Dahl's rights. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, seconded by Mr. Green and duly adopted, 
the Trustees approved Mr. Dahl's application for amendment to state 
permit to allow the boa thou se addition. 



WAKULLA, FRANKLIN, GULF, BAY, WALTON, OKALOOSA, SANTA ROSA AND 

ESCAMBIA COUNTIES - Radcliff Materials, Inc., holder of Shell 
Lease Mo. 1718, requested consent of Trustees for the firm to make 
collateral assignment or mortgage of said lease to North Carolina 
National Bank as Trustee and the Citizens and Peoples National 
Bank of Pensacola as Co- trustee, all under a Second Supplemental 
Indenture from Southern Oyster Shell Milling Corporation (of which 
the Radcliff firm appeared to be a subsidiary) to said Trustee and 
Co- trustee. 

Upon motion by Attorney General Ervin, duly adopted, the Trustees 
consented to the assignment requested by Radcliff Materials, Inc., 
provided the surety bond of 512,000.00 be maintained as required 
under I ten 13 of Shell Lease No. 1718. 



UNDER CHAPTER 18Z96 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees approved Bidding Report 
No. 837 listing 1 bid for sale of Murphy Act land, and authorized 
execution of deed pertaining thereto. 



Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees adjourned.

Central and Southern Florida Flood Control District waived objection. 

Protest received September 9 from R. J. Lewis mentioned other upland 
lota said to be involved in litigation and claimed that the question 
of title to Lots 46 to 50 was in court. However, Sslley and Paul, 
the attorneys for applicants, claimed valid title, denied that the 
lots were in litigation and said that reference to other upland lots 
was irrelevant. In the judgment of the Staff, the protest was not 
valid in view of the information filed. 

Upon motion by Comptroller Green, dily adopted, the Trustees overruled 
the objection and confirmed sale to the applicants at the appraised 
price.

Bruun and Mr, James Purpura of the Coastal Engineering Laboratory pre- 
pared, as a public service, a booklet for publication to give govern- 
mental unite and citizens advice as to appropriate measures to be 
taken during severe storms and periods of acuta erosion. Need for 
publication an) distribution of such a work was apparent and it was 
proposed that the printing cost (estimated 13^ to 15^ per copy) might 
be covered by the then current contract for the fiscal year July 1962 
to June 1963 with the University of Florida Engineering and Industrial 
Experiment Station for services of the Laboratory which Included 
special assignments and work mutually agreed upon. 



-299- 9-10-63 



Printing was delayed several months but funds were available at the 
end of the fiscal year and the printing was not completed and invoiced 
until early in July 1963. The Director recommended approval of the 
Trustees for reimbursement to the Engineering and Experiment Station 
of the printing cost of $444.38, since the work was undertaken 
during the fiscal year of the contract but was not invoiced until 
after the end of the fiscal year.

servation but reserved decision as to source or manner of alloca- 
tion pending negotiation of contract by that Board with the Coastal 
Engineering Laboratory and determination of the extent that services 
would be provided for which the Trustees had been paying from their 
operating budget. 

Also, the request for transfer of funds included proposal that the 
Trustees retain processing fees submitted with applications for 
coastal structures. Since the Trustees under Opinion 063-67 of the 
Attorney General would not handle the applications, the office of 
the Attorney General informally advised that the Trustees should net 
collect such fees; in fact, the Trustees' Staff would have no con- 
tact with beach and shore coastal structures applications which 
would be directed to the Board of Conservation, except when the 
said Board placed its recommendation on the Trustees' agenda for 
approval or rejection of a permit. On the advice of the Attorney 
General's office, since enactment of Chapter 63-40 all applications 
had been referred to the Board of Conservation and processing fees 
returned to the applicants with the exception of the following, for 
which authority was requested to make refunds: The Coastal Arms, 
Inc., Key Colony and Budd Groins. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorized refund of the 
5100.00 processing fees paid by each of the above applicants. 

Upon recommendation of Attorney General Ervln, the Trustees asked 
their Director and the Director of the Board of Conservation to 
counsel for the respective boards with Messrs Parker and Jacobs of 
the Attorney General's office to work out details with reference to 
the transfer of Trustees' funds.

by the daily ebb and flow of the tide, or as swsmp snd overflow land 
subject to a previous patent from the United States to the State of 
Florida aa unsurveyed land. 

Freeman H. Horton, registered land surveyor of Bradenton, employed 
by Trustees to make the field investigation, reported that more than 
95* of the subject area was covered by the dsily ebb and flow of the 
tides, thus clearly defining the land aa sovereignty tidal salt 
marsh, title to which was in the Trustees under the purview of Section 
253.12 Florida Statutes. 

Upon motion by Mr. Ervin, seconded by Mr. Larson and adopted, the 
Trustees confirmed the findings by Mr. Horton who aade the investiga- 
tion, and declared the subject area to be sovereignty lands owned by 
the Trustees. 



- The Board of Consols s loners of State Institutions 
advised that on September 17, 1963 it granted authority for the 
Trustees to approve an easement to Florida Power Corporation covering 
the Bast 14 feet of Lots 1 and 8, Block "A*, Hill's Addition to 
winter Fark (atate office building site) , Orange County. Copy of the 
easement submitted recited consideration of $1.00 snd other valuable 
considerations. The Director recommended amendment of the proposed 
form to include provision saving the Trustees harmless from 
ts or claims arising out of exercise of the easement. 



Questions were raised ss to the consideration to be paid for the 
easement and whether the line was for transmission or distribution. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Staff was requested to obtain additional 
information.

MM BEACH COUNTY - Brockway, Weber and Brockway on behalf of First 
National Bank in Port Lauderdale, as Trustee, the ownei of upland 
in Section 9, Township 42 South, Range 43 Eaat, Palm Beach County, 
requested disclaimer to two tracts of filled land in LaXe Worth 
abutting the upland, which tracts vera filled under Department of 
the Any Permit SAK5F 800.61 (57-104) issued Hay 21, 1957 as approved 
by the Trustees April 23, 1957 upon payment of $19,060.00 for the 
material used for those and other parcels filled with approval of 
the Trusteas. Ex parte disclaimer was recommended covering 31.991 
acres filled in accordance with the policy in effect in 1957 prior 
to passage of the Bulkhead Act. 

Attorney General Ervin reviewed the policy in effect at that time in 
Palm Beach and Dade Counties under the Butler Act, stating that 
prior to passage of the Bulkhead Act June 11, 1957, there was no 
provision for sale of submerged land in those two counties, riparian 
owners had the authority to fill, construct bulkheads, docks, et cetera, 
out to the channel, and it was necessary to purchase from the Trustees 
the fill material offshore. After filling was done title was secured 
through issuance of disclaimer from the Trustees. Mr. Ervin pointed 
out that the Bulkhead Act recognized such fills and the law required 
the Trustees to issue disclaimers. 

upon motion by Attorney General Ervin, duly adopted, the Trustees 
authorized issuance of ex parte disclaimer to the applicant for 
handling charge of $10.00. 



PINELLAS COUNTY - Pile Bo. 306-52-253.12. City of Dunedin Resolu- 
tion No. 942 adopted September 16, 1963 approved and authorized 
construction under revised dredging and filling plans made for marina 
and sewage disposal plant on Dunedin Causeway (formerly Honeymoon 
Island Causeway) . Office of the Attorney General was furnished 
copy of the revised plans and requested consideration by the Trustees, 
since the marina site would be slightly reduced under the revision by 
reason of no bulkhead construction and the requiring of certain sloping 
of the fill under water. The slight deviation of interest primarily 
to the City of Dunedin, was approved by the City Commission, City 
Attorney and Director of Public Works. 

Upon motion by Attorney General Ervin, duly adopted, the Trustees 
granted approval of the revision as approved by the City of Dunedin. 



POLK COUNTY - Upon motion by Mr. Larson, duly adopted, the Trustees 
approved issuance of permits with provisions as recommended by the 
Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission to the following upland 
owners to remove the stated amounts of material from lake bottoms, 
as follows i 

(1) W, Terrell Simpson, 10,000 cubic yards from Lake Hamilton 

to improve upland in the SW% of Section 8, Township 28 South, 
Range 27 Eaat, for $500.00 charge. 

(2) David Giddings and R. w. HcKinben, 7,500 cubic yards from Lake 
Eloise to improve upland property in winter Haven for $37 5.00 
charge . 



SARASOTA COUNTY - File No. 1344-58-253.12. On July 30 the Trustees 
authorized dedication of approximately sixteen acres of submerged 
land in Sarasota Bay in the City of Sarasota for municipal park 
purposes in accordance with request of the Resolution of the City 
Commission, The unrecorded dedication instrument was returned on 
this date and Mayor H. C. Kayo, City Engineer Kenneth Thompson and 
City Attorney John wood called attention to request in the Resolution 



9-24-63 -308- 



that the grant contain provision* that "municipal park purposes" 
would include parking area, facilities for ail types of land and 
aquatic sports, seequarium, accessory uses such as eating and sanitary 
facilities, and buildings necessary or desirable to carry out the con- 
cept of an Island Park and Marina, the right to grant concessions or 
leases for accessory facilities, and right to lease for not exceeding 
thirty years for construction of docks and other structures with pro- 
vision for improvements built by private enterprise to become the 
property of the city upon termination of such lease. The Attorney 
General suggested that the proposed inclusions be considered item by 
item and that all long-term leases and concessions be subject to 
approval by the Trustees. 

City representatives discussed the planned development and stated that 
the proposed facilities were not to be conmercial ventures to finance 
the project (for which a bond issue had been voted) but to revitalize 
the community economy by providing marina and recreation area, that 
the language of the provisions was similar to that in a conveyance made 
by the Trustees to the city in 1960. A development plan was filed 
with the Trustees. 

The Board approved provisions for parking and seaqusrium, tentatively 
agreed to facilities for sports programs, but there was much discussion 
regarding accessory uses such as eating facilities and granting of 
concessions or leases end rights to construct decks and other structures. 
Mr. Kidd mentioned criteria considered necessary for public recreation 
areas, some of which did not appear applicable in this location. The 
Board was concerned about the commercial aspects, the desirability of 
having absolute regulation and policing by the city and provision for 
recapture and termination of any lease arrangement. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees directed the Staff, with the 
assistance of the Attorney General, to draw up s n*w instrument of 
dedication to the City of Sarasota to include provisions for use of 
the land which would meet the concepts expressed 01 this date for public 
park purposes desired by the city and avoiding commercial aspects which 
might compete with private enterprise and cause objections from the 
public. 



TRUSTEES' POLICY - Attention was called to Resolution of Florida Keys 
Chapter of Izaak Walton League adopted September 14, 1963 which pro- 
posed that Trustees "immediately remove from sale all underwater and 
tidal lands for private development or commercial exploitation." 

Also, Resolution of Florida Division of Icaak Walton League adopted 
at meeting held August 24 and 25, 1963, proposed that the Trustees 
repurchase the bay bottom lands heretofore sold which remained u n d e- 
ve loped and held for speculative purposes. 

Governor Bryant said that the Resolutions deserved the Board's full 
consideration but ha pointed out that all state land above water had 
been removed from eale except in instances where it was judged to have 
no potential state use, that the Trustees operated under the bulkhead 
law which had been worked out carefully and he felt it was unwise, 
especially in the absence of two members, to make the categorical deci- 
sion requested, that what one parson called private development another 
considered the right to exercise riparian rights. 

Attorney General Ervin felt that blanket restrictions caused difficulty, 
that each situation after action by the local governing body deserved 
investigation, which was being done by the Governor's Land Use and 
Recrestion Committee and careful consideration on a selective basis by 
the Trustees. 



-309- 9-24-63 



Kr. Larson pointed out that the Board had Dean receptive to suggestions 
from conservation groups and every application stood on its own merits. 
The resolutions ss stated want too far, in his opinion. 

upon motion by Mr. Ervin, duly adopted, the Trustees aaXed Mr. Kidd 
to meet with representatives of the Izaak Walton League to try to de- 
velop a rational understanding of the problems and concrete recommend* - 
tions for achieving a policy for utilisation of state lands to the 
maximum benefit of the people of Florida.

LAMP SALES 



HAETIW COUMTY - File Ho. 1300-43-253.12. On August 20 the Trustees 
authorised advertisement for objections only upon application by 
Perry Boswell, Jr., abutting upland owner. Who offered the appraised 
price of 1302.48 per acre for purchase of two contiguous parcels of 
submerged land in the Indian River in the Town of Sewall'a Point 
within the established bulkhead line in Section 12, Township 38 South, 
Range 41 East end Section 7, Township 38 South, Range 42 East, con- 
taining 11.71 acres, more or lees, in Martin County. Motioe of sale 
wee published in The Stuart Hews, proof of publication filed, and no 
protest received. Central and Southern Florida Flood Control District 
and the Board of County Coemiaeionera filed waiver of objections. 

Upon motion adopted without objection, the Trustees confirmed sale 
of the land to the applicant at the appraised price. 



GLADES COUMTY - File No. 1332-22-253.36. On September 17 the Trustees 
approved sale of 1.16 acres of reclaimed Lake Okeechobee bottom land 
in Sect lone 22 and 27, Township 40 South, Range 32 East to Olen 
Rhymes, subject to determination by the Attorney General that the 
state road between the Rhymes upland and 1.16 acre parcel did not 
extinguish any preferential or riparian rights attaching to appli- 
cant's upland. Opinion of the Attorney General wee that existence of 
the road was not considered to interfere with the statutory preference 
or riparian rights. 

Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees confirmed the eale without 
advertisement or public sale, at the appraised price of $689.70 for 
the parcel. 



APPLICATIONS FOR LAMP 

The following five applications were presented frost abutting upland 
owners for purchase of submerged lands riparian to their upland 
ihipet 



1. BREVARD COUNTY - File No. 1271-05-253.12. Robert s. Campbell

price of 9391.00 per acre for a parcel of submerged land in 
the Atlantic Ocean in Section 27, Township 58 South, Range 41 
Beat, Old Rhodes Key in the City of Ialandla containing 23.0 
acrea within the established bulkhead line. 



-311- 10-8-63 



4. MONROE COUNTY • File Ho. 1370-44-253.12. Cayo Lago Development 
Corporation offered the appraised price of $235.00 per acre for 

a parcel of submerged land in Broad Creek in Section 32, Township 
58 South, Range 41 East, containing 87.75 acres within the area 
bulkhead line. 

5. Palm Beach County - Pile Ho. 1393-50-253.12. George P. Brockway 
on behalf of the Estate of Anton B. Twingstrand, abutting upland 
owner, offered the appraised price of $1573.40 per acre for a 
parcel of sovereignty land in Boca Ratonea Lagoon in Section 

16, Township 47 South, Range 43 East, containing 2.106 acres 
lying between the meander lines. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, seconded and adopted, the Trustees 
authorised the five parcels advertised for objections only. 



INDI/K RIVER COUNTY - File No. 1223-31-253.12. Pirat Realty Asso- 
ciates, incorporated, abutting upland owner, on November 6, 1962 
offered $100.00 per acre for purchase of a tract of 157.32 acres, in 
the Indian River in Sections 4 and 9, Township 31 South, Range 39 
East, within the established bulkhead line, being approximately 16 
acres of submerged area within the over-all tract part of which was 
landward of the United States survey meander, in private record 
ownership, and also to clear title to the remainder which was mangrove 
marsh land exposed at normal high water. On this date offer of 
$200.00 per acre was presented, the increase in price recommended 
by the Staff Appraiser. 

Also, Pile No. 1362-31-253.12. Henry G. Simmonite on behalf of The 
Rio Corporation, riparian upland owner, offered $200.00 per acre for 
a tract of sovereignty land attached to applicant's upland con- 
taining 168.18 acres in Sections 3 and 4, Township 31 South, 
Range 39 East, in the Indian River within the established bulkhead 
line. 

The following information was applicable to both applications. The 
areas sought were attached to applicants' uplands, some portions 
being of the character of swamp and overflowed land enuring to the 
State of Florida under the Act of Congress approved September 28, 
1850, and other portions tidal swamp, sovereignty in character. 
At the request of the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service a "formal 
examination" was made recently by the U. S. Bureau of Land Manage- 
ment which concluded that the subject area was public land, swamp 
in character, which existed in 1S45 and 1859, not tidal but erroneously 
omitted from the official U. S. Survey, and that "although these 
lands are swamp in character, title thereto has not passed to the 
State" and that the same were subject to use by the U. S. Fish and 
Wildlife Service under an Executive Order Ho. 1014 of January 26, 
1909. The Trustees* Staff was not in agreement with the conclusion 
that the subject area was public land or swamp and overflow lands 
in 184 5 or 1859 since there was no indication that the "formal 
examination" considered the fact that the level of the Indian River 
was changed by the artificial creation of Sebastian Inlet. One or 
more inches in reduction of normal water level would change the 
character of sovereignty, tidal shallows to the character of swamp 
and overflowed public land. Staff did not agree that title to any 
swamp and overflowed lands of 1845 had not passed to the State since 
the Act of Congress of 1850 stated that such lands "shall be and the 
same are, hereby, granted to said State." If title passed to the 
State the lands were not subject to use by the U. S. Pish and Wild- 
life Service under the 1909 Executive Order. The Regional Supervisor, 
Branch of Realty, U. S. Pish and Wildlife Service, in a letter March 
2, 1962 held concerning mangrove in Charlotte County that "Although 



10-8-63 -312- 



President Theodore Roosevelt's Order applied to a vast area of unsurveyed 
mangrove islands and tide lands we were advised by the Bureau of Land 
Management in 19S0 that such were probably vested in the Stste of 
Elerida mad were not subject to such an Order" and "A survey in 1954 
revealed 20.24 acres of land to be public domain of the United States. 
The remainder is property of the State of Florida." 

The office of the Attorney General reviewed the matter in detail and 
processing of the applications, with notice to the 0. S. Pish and 
Wildlife Service and Bureau of Land Management, was suggested in order 
that the legal status of the State's right to the lends and right to 
dispose of the lands eight be clarified. 

It wes so ordered. 



PAliM BEACH COUNTY - Okeelanta Sugar Refinery, Incorporated, offered 
$220.00 per acre for that part of Section 9, Township 45 South, Range 
35 Bast which was west of right of way of Miami Canal, 308.53 acres, 
subject to the unexpired ten-year lease dated October 26, 1962, held 
by Brown Sugar Corporation. The offer was uniform with the high bid 
received at sale on June 25, 1963, of the adjacent unencumbered Section 
8, Township 45 South, Range 35 East, 

The lend was in an area approved by the Governor's Committee on Recre- 
ational Development for sale or other disposition. The applicant 
firm advised that it was negotiating for purchase of other lands west 
of its mill-site. 



The State Board of Education on this date authorised advertisement for 
competitive bids for its land adjoining Trustees land on the north. 

Upon notion by Mr. Larson, duly adopted, the Trustees authorized the 
land advertised for competitive sale.

cation. 



1074-31-253.12. Bulkhead Line end Appli- 



Def erred on September 24 and presented on this data for further con- 
sideration was the bulkhead line amended by the Council of the Town 
of Indian River Shores by Ordinance Mo. 12 dated January 9, 1962, 
located in Section 35, Township 31 South, Range 39 Best and Section* 
1, 2, 11, 12 and 13, Township 32 South, Range 39 East. 



Also, Jack Jennings was present on behalf of application by Fred R. 
Tuerk, riparian upland owner, to purchase four tracts of submerged 
land comprising 352.23 acres, more or less, in the Indian River in 
the above sections, within the amended bulkhead line. Staff Appraiser 
reported a value of $150.00 per acre for the lend. 



Upon motion by Mr, Larson, seconded and adopted, the Trustees formally 
approved the amended bulkhead line adopted by the Town of Indian 
River Shores on January 9, 1962, and authorized the submerged land 
applied for by Mr. Tuerk to be advertised for objections only. 



BULKHEAD LIMES 



MARTIN COUNTY - On July 2 the Trustees deferred action for reports by 
Engineer Kidd and the State Board of Conservation concerning (a) pro- 
posed revised bulkhead line fixed June 12, 1962 by Resolution of the 
Board of County Commissioners of Martin County and (b) proposed 
revised bulkhead line fixed by Town Council of Ocean Breeze Park by 
Ordinance No. 7 passed June 15, 1963. The original bulkhead line fixed 



-313- 



10-8-63 



throughout, before the municipality was incorporated, was 250 feet 
offshore from mean high water. The town adopted a line 1000 feet 
offshore and the Martin County unit was from a point 250 feet offshore 
at the Jensen Bridge to the north end of the town's proposed line. 

Board of Conservation report of July 18, 1963 recommended that the 
bulkhead line be held to 250 feet offshore with dredging confined to 
water depths of six feet or more. Report of investigation made under 
direction of Trustees' Engineer called attention to an area previously 
filled to 60Q feet offshore and suggested that such distance offshore 
would be equitable. Drawing attached to the report showed the suggested 
line beginning 250 feet offshore at Jensen Bridge and running in a 
straight course to meet a line 600 feet offshore at the Town of Ocean 
Breeze Park, which would cut off 400 feet of the town's proposed 
extension. 

Senator Evans Crary pointed out that the trailer park ahould be allowed 
to expand in the interest of tourism, that construction of required 
facilities would not be economically feasible for an area extended less 
than 600 feet, that the river waa wide, the water shallow, and the 
economic advantages would outweigh any displacement of wildlife. 

In view of the conservation aspects, the Attorney General felt that 

the bulkhead lines should be referred back to the local govering 

bodies for shortening the extension to even less than 600 feet offshore. 

Upon motion by Mr. £rvin, seconded by Mr. Larson and adopted without 
objection, the Trustees deferred action for the bulkhead lines to 
be referred back to the Town of Ocean Breeze Park and Martin County 
for consideration of the Board's suggestion that the extension of 
their respective units of the lines be reduced. 



BREVARD COUNTY - Referred to the Trustees for formal approval was the 
amended bulkhead line established by the Board of County Commissioners 
of Brevard County in meeting September 19, 1963. The line was located 
in the Indian River westerly of uplands in Section 7, Township 30 
South, Range 39 East. The proposed development plan of the upland 
owner, Louis B. Bills, was submitted for examination. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, duly adopted, the Trustees formally approved 
the amended bulkhead line fixed by Brevard County on September 19, 
1963. 



MISCELLANEOUS 



COUNTY - Notices were issued to the applicants, the county and 
others, advising of consideration by the Trustees on this date of 
applications by the City of Is land ia for causeway across Biscayne Bay 
and by Seadade Industries, Incorporated, for a ship channel to serve 
port and induatrial development. The review and report of the 
Trustees' Staff was read, as follows: 

APPLICATIONS OP ISLAKDIA AND SEADADE 

The Board of County Commissioners of Dade County, Florida, 
adopted Resolution No. 8626 on Hay 14, 1963, which resolu- 
tion submitted to the Trustees their recommendations with 
respect to the applications, now pending before the Trustees, 
of the City of Is land ia for an easement for a right of way 
on which to construct a causeway from the mainland to the 
offshore islands. Also included in this resolution were 
the recommendations of the Dade County Commissioners con- 
cerning the application, now pending before the Trustees, 
of Seadade Industries, Inc., for construction of deep-sea 
port and ship channel from this port across lower Biscayne Bay 

10-8-63 -314- 



to the Atlantic Ocean. In addition to recommendations aa 
to the alignment of the cauaeway and the channel, thia 
resolution contained suggestions aa to diapoaition of the 
fill mate rial resulting from the construction of the 
channel and a request that the Trustees impose such con- 
ditions and restrictions for construction of these projects 
aa might reasonably ba required to prevent any adverse effact 
upon tidal action, marine life or other detrimental ef facta 
upon the natural environs of Biacayne Bay. The staff 
respect fully submits the following recommendations aa to the 
formal proposals contained in subject Resolution Ho. 8626 
of Dade County Commissioners: 

1. ALIGNMENT OF THE SEADADB CHANNEL. 

It is the feeling of the staff that the ship channel should 
take off in the Northerly area of the port facility and 
enter the Atlantic Ocean just North of the Etagged Kays rather 
than through Levis Cut, aa shown on location map attached 
to subject raaolution. This route eliminates the damages 
which would accrue to Islandia by the separation which would 
result by routing the channel through Levis Cut. It has the 
additional advantage of granting full recognition to (he 
riparian rights of the upland ownera in Island is who might 
be adversely affected by the Levis Cut alignment. In further 
support of this route, we feel it will make it more faaaibla 
from an engineer lag point of view to provide for a common 
crossing of the Intracoastal Waterway and the ship channel, 
which enhances the economic feasibility of both projects. 

2. ALIGNMENT OP THE ISLANDIA CAUSEWAY. 

Wa are in substantial agreement with the location or align- 
ment aa proposed by the map attached to the Dade County Reso- 
lution Ho, 8626, heretofore mentioned. West of the Intracoastal 
Waterway i the alignment East of the Intracoastal Waterway to 
be generally parallel to and within a distance not in excess 
of one mile of the ship channel, insofar aa ia feasible, 
except in the area which the causeway terminates on Sands 
Key. 



The common crossing of both the Intracoastal Waterway and the 
ship channel should be wall offshore from both Islandia 
and the mainland to provide adequate space for proper 
engineering designing to ramp the approaches to the high-level 
bridge which would be required for thia crossing. The exact 
alignment a of the cauaeway and ship channel would of necessity 
have to be predicated on acceptable engineering considerations, 
with both projects being planned concurrently, and with such 
collaboration and consultation aa ia deemed neceasary to 
assure the success of both projects. 

3. IN THE EVENT the Trustees view with favor the general 
recommendations as above outlined, the parties at interest 
would be expected to operate within the framework of the 
following requir em ents. 



4. DISPOSITION OP PILL MATERIAL. 






(a) Causeway. Ws auggeat that Saadade should be required 
to fill to the roadway in all designated locations which lis 
within one mile of the excavation for the ship channel. 
Seadade would be reimbursed for added pumping costs for fill 
placed on the roadway where the distance is in excess of one 
Bile. 



-315- 10-8-63 



^ 



(b) Surplus spoil material west of the Intracoastal 
Waterway shall accrue to Seadade and may be used to fill 
the submerged land in the port property which has been 
purchased from the Trustees. Spoil material secured from 
the ship channel dredging operations used in filling the 
upland port property of Seadade shall be paid for at the 
standard rates and these coats may be credited against charges 
incurred as a result of pumping costs for placing spoil mate- 
rial on the causeway roadway at distances in excess of one 
mile as heretofore mentioned. 

(c) Ml spoil material resulting from dredging the 
ship channel Easterly of Islandia is considered as excess 
and a nuisance, and will be disposed of by Seadade; provided, 
however, that no spoil islands, hindrances to navigation or 
operations which would induce erosion as a result of the 
disposition of this spoil material, will be permitted. 

5. ALLOCATION OP BRIDGE COSTS. 

We recommend that the costs of the high-level bridge which 
will provide a common crossing of the Intracoastal Waterway 
and the ship channel, should be prorated as follows: 

(a) Islandia to be obligated to pay full estimated cost 
of a low-level bridge, which would be required for crossing 

the Intracoastal Waterway in the absence of the need for crossing 
the proposed ship channel. 

(b) The estimated coat of the high-level bridge, 
required for common crossing of the Intracoastal Waterway 
and the ship channel, less the cost of the low- level bridge 
as atated in item (a) above, shall be the obligation of both 
Islandia and Seadade to be shared equally, 

(c) This distribution as to costs of the high-level 
bridge is deemed justified by reason of the benefits which 
will accrue to Islandia as a result of the fill to be placed 
on Causeway by Seadade. 

6. APPLICATION OF PATSAND TO CONSTRUCT CAUSEWAY TO ISLANDIA. 

It is the feeling of the staff that this application should 
be rejected since it is our feeling that the construction of 
a causeway to Islandia should be the responsibility of a 
public governmental agency. 

7. PUBLIC BENEFITS TO BE DERIVED FROM THESE PROJECTS. 

The staff feela that the Islandia Causeway offers excellent 
prospects for public recreation areas and staff strongly urges 
the Trustees to prescribe ample protection of these areas by 
proper instrument of dedication prohibiting any of these 
causeway areas from being diverted to private commercial uses. 

S. FACTUAL EVALUATIONS. 

These recommendations from the staff are predicated upon what 
we feel is a fair and reasonable evaluation of the pertinent 
correspondence and documents on file and a careful review of 
the testimony and exhibits submitted at the public hearing 
held on June 18, 19, 1963, in the Dade County Auditorium, as 
directed by the Trustees on Hay 28, 1963, relating to these 
applications. It also should be pointed out that the staff 
has had numerous conferences with representatives of both 
applicants and many conferences have been held by the staff in 



10-8-63 -316- 



an honest and conscientious effort to provide iooa helpful 
guidance to the Trustees, looking toward the proper disposi- 
tion of the numerous controversial issues involved in these 
applications. 



It Is our conclusion that the canton crossing of the Intra- 
coastal Waterway and the ship channel at one point is 
economically feasible and is practical from an engineering 
point of view, with respect to the apprehension which has 
been expressed concerning the dangers and adverse effects 
which the Seadade Project nay have on the marine life and 
its possible detrimental effects upon the natural environs 
of fiiscayne Bay, it is our feeling that the Dade County 
anti-pollution regulation will provide adequate safeguards, 
properly enforced and complied with by Seadade. 

9. Mr. William R. Kidd, Engineer for the Trustees, suggests 
a further requirement be imposed on Islandia, which is not 
concurred in by the other members of the staff, due primarily 
to the difficulties and uncertainties which would be 
encountered in implementing these requirements which involve 
extinguishment and surrender of private property rights 

as now vested. 

Mr. Kidd suggests that the alignment of the roadway on 
Islandia be relocated along the Easterly shore of the islands, 
and that no construction or development be permitted in the 
area between the roadway and the Atlantic Ocean. This new 
alignment would have the result of providing the following 
public purpose benefits) 

(a) Public access to the Atlantic Ocean. 

(b) Possible scenic highway to connect with the upper 
Keys as a part of long-range planning for this area. 

(c) Provide protection for the marine life along the 
shell reef area. 

(d) Enhance the financial feasibility of the Islandia 
Causeway Project by increasing the flow of traffic. 

10. CAUSEWAY AND BRIDGE SPECIFICATIONS. 

All causeways and bridges in the Islandia to meet standards 
of Florida State Road Department. 

11. PROCEDURE SUGGESTED IF EITHER APPLICANT FAILS TO PROCEED 
WITH PROJECT. 



In the event either Islandia or Seadade is unable or is un- 
willing to proceed with construction of its project in accord- 
ance with the final determination of the Trustees, it is 
suggested that such failure of the one should not interfere 
with the other. It is assumed that in such event appropriate 
modifications would be required concerning the determina- 
tion made by the Trustees as to these applications. 



Proponents of the projects included Mayor Luther L. Brooks and Attorney 
Jack Watson for the City of Islandia; Tom Maxey, owner of land in 
Islandia; James D. Bush, Jr., representing Seadade Industries, Inc., 
Harold A. Scott of Reynolds, Smith & Hills, Engineering Consultant to 
Seadade; Senator Harry St ration and others. Letters and wires urging 
favorable consideration were filed from Representative Leo A. Furlong, 
several members of South Dade Council, Miami Dade Chamber of Commerce

and B. E. He l» on of Aero! at- General Corporation. 



Object loni war* presented from the Florida Ixaak Walton League (by 
wire), K. R. Lazarus representing the Safe Progress Association and 
several other conservation groups, and E. B. Chamberlain of the United 
States Fish and Wildlife Service. Request vti made for delay of 
action until a complete ecological survey was made of the area to 
determine the effect dredging would have on the natural resources 
in Biscay ne Bay. It was stated that consideration was being given 
to use of the islands for a national park. 



Maps were displayed on which were indicated the alignment recommended 
by the Trustees' Staff for the ship channel and causeway, the cause- 
way right of way applied for by Is land ia and the route laid out by 
Seadade in its ship channel application. Mr, Bush told of original 
plsns, engineering studies made, changes resulting from many con- 
ferences and the latest route based on recommendations of Dade County, 
from the port site across Biscayne Bay through Lewis Cut between 
Boca Chita and Sands Keys to the Atlantic Ocean. Because of the 
increased cost snd greater channel maintenance work, he said, the 
company could not accept the route recommended by the Staff. Mr. 
Scott, and also Senator Stratton, pointed out the economic value to 
the area of the deep water port and channel and the added hazard of 
a curve in the channel route. 

Mayor Brooks and Mr. Watson, for the City of Islandia, approved the 
route recommended by the Staff. 

Attorney General Ervin said that the private corporation, in effect, 
would be gaining rights and lands of the State and should make 
every effort to accede to the requested alignment change in order to 
cooperate with the related public causeway project, that the Trustees 
tried to balance public and private rights and to evaluate conaer- 
vation, marine and economic factors in making a decision in the public 
interest and depended on the Staff for recommendation. 

Upon motion by Mr. Ervin, duly adopted, the Trustees took under 
advisement the determination of a reasonable and feasible solution, 
and urged Seadade Industries, Inc., to yield as far aa possible 
in cooperation with the causeway project in the public interest. 



CHARLOTTE COUNTY - Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees authorises 
refund to Punta Gorda Isles, Inc., in the amount of $137.69 which 
was overpaid by the firm in paying the amount due on October 1, 1963 
as balance due on Contract Mo. 23169(1132-08). 



CHARLOTTE COUMTY - Upon motion by Kr. Larson, duly adopted, the 
Trustees granted to the West Coast Inland Navigation District an 
easement over a parcel of submerged land in Gasparilla Sound in 
Section 13, Township 42 South, Range 20 East, Charlotte County, for 
use as a spoil area in construction of the V.est Coast Intracoastal 
Waterway. 



COLLIER COUMTY -A. P. Ayers applied for five-year campsite lease 
of an offshore sand bar in the Gulf of Mexico at Latitude 25*50' 30" 
South, Longitude 81*40' 7, 5" West, containing approximately three 
acres about three- fourths mile southeast of Cape Romano. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, duly adopted, the Trustees approved five- 
year lease for campsite purposes only, at $75.00 per year rental, 
subject to 120- day cancellation clause and provision saving Trustee! 
harmless from any claim of damaqe arising from flooding or changes 
of water level. 



DADE COUNTY - Upon motion by Mr. Conner, duly adopted, the Trustees 
granted perpetual right of way easement to the Florida Inland Naviga- 

10-8-63 -318- 



tion Diatrict, on behalf of the United States of America, over a 
small parcel of submerged lend in Dun found ling Bey in Section 11, 
Township 52 South, Range 42 Eeet, Dade County. 



DADS COUNTY - Metropolitan Dade County on behalf of the United States 
requested perpetual easement for right of way for Baker's haulover 
Inlet Channel between the Xntracoaetel Waterway right of way and the 
Atlantic Ocean over submerged bottoms in Dade County, title to which 
is in the Trustees of the Internal Im p r ove— nt Fund. 

Upon motion by Commissioner Conner, duly adopted, the Trustees granted 
to the United States easement covering such interests as the Trustees 
night hold in said submerged lands and subject to all riparian and 
other legal rights of private owners. 



GULT COUNTY - The Clerk of the circuit Court of Gulf County, on behalf 
of H. D. Grins lade as owner of Lots 5 and 6 in Block 2 Ida Griffin's 
Addition to Wewahitchka, requested quitclaim of the lots from the 
Trustees. The lots vested in the State of Florida under the Murphy 
Act and were conveyed to C. C. Land by Gulf County Murphy Act deed 
Ho. 7 dated November 4, 1940, Under a city tax foreclosure Master's 
Deed was issued to the City of Wewahitchka November 14, 1933 and on 
November 28, 1940 the city sold the lots to C. C. Land but, according 
to two members of the City Commission as of November- 28, 1940, it 
was the intent of the city to sell the lots to Carrie Rhemea and the 
city did on April 7, 1941 issue deed to Cams tttaasa whose interest 
subsequently vested in B. D. Grinslade. On November 30, 1946 C. C. 
Land and wife quitclaimed the lots to the Trustees (for $1.00 "and 
other good and valuable consideration") but no refund was mads, the 
quitclaim having been made and recorded without the knowledge of the 
Trustees' Office. It was believed the intent was to revest the State 
with the Murphy Act title sold to Mr. Land in 1940. 

The record disclosed no failure of title and the Director felt that 
any authorization for issuance of quitclaim should be conditioned 
upon Mr. Grinslade obtaining and filing written waiver of objection 
by C. C. Land. 

Upon motion by Mr. Larson, duly adopted, the Trustees authorised 
issuance of quitclaim deed with the condition recommended, for $10,00 
handling charge. 



LEE COUNTY - Upon motion by Mr. Larson, duly adopted, the Trustees 
granted easement to the West Coast Inland Navigation District over 
three separate parcels of submerged land in Charlotte Harbor in 
sections 12 and 13, Township 43 South, Range 20 Bast, Lee County, for 
uss as spoil areas in the construction of the West Coast Intracoastal 
Waterway. 



MONROE COUNTY - The City of Key West raised question ss to whether 
the status of its title to 91.3 seres of submerged land in Garrison 
Bight hindered the State Road Department in construction of causeway 
and bridge across s portion of the tract. Records of the Trustees 
showed that the city offered $40 per acre but sought the land for 
public purposes and requested the Trustees to require payment of only 
$10 per acre as the share of the State School Fund, which proposal 
was approved November 19, 1946 and the sale advertised. Sale was 
confirmed January 14, 1947 "upon terms heretofore agreed upon, the 
deed to contain reversion clause in event the land should ever be 
ussd for other than public purposes." On April 11, 1947, Deed No, 
192S9 in favor of the city was issued without expressed use limita- 
tion.

The City of Key Heat planned to receive bids on October 9 for lease 
of approximately IS. 3 acres of the tract for marina and other opera- 
tions for a sixty-year term with option to lessee to renew or extend 
for an additional 39 years. Rental contemplated was a percentage of 
gross receipts from lessee's operation, the improvements to vest in 
the city on lease termination. The city provided a master develop- 
ment plan which committed lessee to construct (1) piers, berths and 
catwalks for at least 75 vessels, (2) one pier equipped to serve as 
a marine fueling facility, and (3) a public landing area for visiting 
vessels, cost to aggregate not less than $120,000 with performance 
bond of $50,000 to guarantee construction of marina and allied improve- 
ments. City advised that at least double the $120,000 investment 
would be necessary in order to have an efficient, profitable operation. 

The Attorney General suggested amendment of the deed to include 
public purpose clause which the Road Department would not be expected 
to object to since the deed was given for public purposes; that the 
amended deed might make specific reference to the construction of 
causeway and bridge and the marina; and that the Trustees should 
review and approve the lease terms and design of initial installations 
under the proposed lease. 

In event the Trustees should approve the long term lease of IS. 3 acres, 
Staff recommended that lease provisions be subject to approval by the 
Attorney General, that authorization be given for amendment of Deed 
No. 19259 to set forth the public purpose and reversion provision as 
provided for in the minutes of January 14, 1947, such amendment to 
be developed by the Staff, Attorney General and the City of Key West, 
and to include reference to the State Road causeway and bridge and the 
proposed marina lease. 

Upon motion by Treasurer Larson, adopted without objection, the 
Trustees approved the recommendations of the Staff subject to all 
details being worked out by the Attorney General. 



PALM BEACH COUNTY - Central and Southern Florida Flood Control District 
requested easement covering additional right of way for construction 
of Lake Okeechobee Levee L-D2 over a strip of land owned by the 
Trustees in Pelican Bay in Sections 1 and 12, Township 43 South, 
Range 36 East and in Section 7, Township 43 South, Range 37 East. The 
parcel of sovereignty land 20 feet wide easterly of and parallel and 
adjacent to the present easterly right of way line of said levee was 
formerly included in right of way granted to the State Road Department 
for State Road 7 IS construction and was released by the Road Depart- 
ment by quitclaim. 



Upon motion by Commissioner Conner, duly adopted, the Trustees granted 
to Central and Southern Florida Flood Control District easement over 
the land requested. 



F I HELLAS COUHTY - File No. 1349-52-253.124. On July 30 the Trustees

Company as Trustee and approved fill permit which was granted by 
Pinellas County Water and Navigation Control Authority on June 13, 
1963 subject to sale of the land by the Trustees. On September 19, 
1963 the Pinellas County Authority issued fill permit Ho, PF202 
to the same permittee for 0.428 acre parcel of land. 



Upon motion duly adopted, the Trustees formally approved the fill

DADE COtntTY - File Mo. 1263-13-253. 12. On behalf of Edward P. Zimmer- 
un whose application for a 23-acre tract of submerged land at Old 
Rhode a Kay, City of la land ia. Dad* County, was cone ide red on October 
8, request waa praaanted by w. Dexter Douglass for reduction of the 
$391.00 per acrs value which waa assigned by Trustees' Appraiser in 
1963 after review of established price of $235 per acre which waa 
quoted in November 1962 to Starr W. Horton, attorney who filed appli- 
cation on January 11, 1963 for Mr. Zimmerman. In March Mr. Horton 
requested reconsideration of the price increase and suggested $300 per 
acre. Mr. Douglass of Tallahassee, employed to seek reduction of 
price, was not notified of consideration on October 8 since it 
appeared that Mr. Horton '« letter of August 29 stating that applicant 
desired to complete purchase implied acceptance of the appraised value. 

Mr, Douglass asid his client felt ha was entitled to rely on the price 
quoted to him in November and objected to the appraiser's use of 
enhancement of upland already owned by applicant aa basis for fixing 
price. The Trustees' Appraiser explained other facto ra involved, 
including the declining market at time of the first sppraieal and 
higher prices in several recent aales in the vicinity. Mr. Douglass 
requested the Board to secure a neutral appraiser to make another evalu- 
ation. 

Comptroller Green was not willing to change his position of requiring 
appraised value for State lands. Attorney General Brvin said the 
Board had previously adhered to appraised values and he did not recom- 
mend establishing a precedent of calling for additional appraisals. 

Upon notion by Mr. Larson, unanimously adopted, the Trustees declined 
the request for price reduction and agreed to aell only on the basis 
of the appralaed value, subject to advertisement for objections only.
